Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc
In 1994, Anthony Hamilton-Russell founded Southern Right Cellars, and in partnership with winemaker Kevin Grant, the first vintage was released in 1995. Named after a whale that's often found off the coast of Walker Bay, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is 100% Sauvignon Blanc brought up all in tank; it has always been quite restrained - neither too green nor too fruity.
Made reductively in order to maximize the fruit personality of the vintage, while maintaining the typical Southern Right balance of Old World minerality and length with hints of New World palate coverage and body. The 2017 is a wine that favors origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil has added an intense mid-palate structural component and addition overall complexity to this wine.
