Southern Right Pinotage 2020
|Region||South Africa, Walker Bay|
Southern Right is re-defining Pinotage with this intense classically styled, clay-grown wine, packed with complex berry fruit, beautiful tannins and subtle wood spice. Full ripeness and the longer hang-time afforded by cooler sites, combined with the complex, more classic fruit aromas and structure resulting from clay-rich soil, make this wine a highly individual expression of South Africa's unique grape variety.
Distinctive, this offers a lovely mint note, backed by pure raspberry and damson plum coulis flavors that streak along, all carried by finely beaded acidity. A pure, racy version, atypical for this varietal.
The 2020 Pinotage feels a little backward on the nose despite coaxing; here, it's outperformed by the Ashbourne Pinotage. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy, with supple tannins and modest depth. Silky-smooth, but it needs a little more grip on the finish. Drink over the next 4-6 years.
Adult Signature is required for every shipment.
