grapes were sourced from the Kasteelsig vineyard which is owned by Painted Wolf Pack members Billy (Guillermo) and Penny Hughes. The grapes are organically farmed and will be fully organically certified in the 2013 vintage. The site is primarily red Glenrosa soil with some Oakleaf – both shale rich duplex soils. The vineyards are irrigated. Kasteelsig vineyard supplies grapes for some of South Africans top boutique wines. Yields are round 8 tons to the hectare.

The grapes were hand picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were hand sorted, destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented in small open fermented bins with 4 punch downs per day. Before the wine was totally dry, we pressed and placed it in oak barrels to complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in a mixture of French, Hungarian and American oak barrels for 14 months, approximately 40% new wood. A small percentage of merlot and Grenache were added to the wine to lift the fruit of the wine. 2400 bottles have been produced – the bottling has been split and is sealed with both natural cork and screw cap.

raspberry scents shooting from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied, silky smooth in the mouth with wonderful acidity, crisp and focused with great tension and minerality (yes...even on a Pinotage!) toward the finish. This is about as good as this grape variety gets"

Pinotage is a red wine grape that is South Africa’s signature variety. It is a viticultural cross of two varieties of the Vitis Vinifera varieties of Pinot Noir and Cinsault, which occurred in 1925. Cinsault was known as “Hermitage” in South Africa during that time, hence the Portmanteau name of Pinotage. Southern Right is a small Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc project created by Anthony Hamilton Russell in the cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation of South Africa. The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales, which frequent the cool South Atlantic Walker Bay. Southern Right's aim was to produce a serious, age-worthy Pinotage combining a distinct South African grape variety with great flavor, classic styling and refinement.

Southern Right has elevated South Africa's red grape variety and is easily the best-selling Pinotage we carry at Hi-Time. In fact, this is the best Pinotage we have ever tasted! If you’ve been looking to try something new, this Pinotage is firing on all cylinders and is a great way to broaden your horizons! This wine is seriously dark in color, almost opaque. The complex nose includes essences of black cherry, toasty notes, spices, pekoe tea, and exotic purple flowers. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and extremely balanced with black cherry, black raspberry and a smoky minerality. There is excellent balance and persistence from the initial taste, continuing through the mid-palate and culminating in a very long finish.
