Estate Notes

The latest 2018 release of Southern Right's Sauvignon Blanc is a yet another classy (and great value) South African Sauvignon Blanc from the makers of famed Hamilton Russell estate.

Named after the rare Southern Right whales from the bay nearby, this small, quality-led operation is now making big waves. Given the cool maritime location it is essentially Old World in style with lovely defined minerality and purity. And if you need any more reason to buy this benchmark wine, then it must be noted that for every bottle sold, the estate will donate to the conservation of the whales.


“The Southern Right Sauvignon comes from 16 different blocks in Walker Bay. Unwooded, it’s a sappy, saline, vinous white with dill and grapefruit flavours and a juicy, lip smacking finish." Tim Atkin MW

"Southern Right is a small Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc specialist located on a strikingly beautiful 448 ha property in the cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village Hermanus. The Sauvignon blanc remains a local and international best seller with its classic, tight minerality complementing the prominent varietal fruit. It has been rated best South African Sauvignon Blanc in the Wall Street Journal and was the only Sauvignon Blanc to win a Gold Medal at the Classic Wine Trophy awards in 2009." Tim Atkin MW
