Southern Right – Best New World Red!

Posted on: July 12, 2010

Southern Right 2007 Pinotage “Best New World Red” for Steven Spurrier

We were pleased to note in the August issue of Decanter that our 2007 Pinotage was Spurrier’s choice of Best New World Red for the month.


The wine is approaching being sold out and we have made sure to keep back enough for our wine library. Southern Right Pinotage has tremendous ageing potential – particularly 2004 and on, when all our Pinotage has been Estate grown. The 2007, after an hour or so of Decanting, is starting to show wonderful savoury/umami characters which will only intensify with time. It remains a wine that even the most knowledgeable palates find incredibly hard to place – a great blind tasting wine! When it is placed it is usually somewhere in the Old World.


We continue with our quest to re-define Pinotage!


All the best and thank you for supporting our wines.
