S&C / as before except the newer vintage. A little more fruity with lovely dry after tones. Delicious 😃 — 10 days ago
Soft minerals, stone fruit, apricot tartness finish. Really enjoyable, a bargain. — 2 years ago
Fantastically crisp. Works well with the Caribbean spices at this excellent restaurant. The wine has notes of rhubarb and citrus, with aftertaste that lingers. Floral to the nose. — 4 days ago

Friday Night Whites. Picked up this little southern beauty from the grocery based solely on location and label - yes, that’s me, basic AF. Anyways, Southern Right is a winery based on the southwest tip of South Africa that specializes in Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc. The 2017 SvB is a dry offering of 10% Hemel-en-Aarde Valley grapes with the rest being a blend of other Walker Bay SvB with ~14k cases produced. Most of the grapes in the area grow in a sandstone/clay soil in a maritime climate, yielding a nice old world flavor profile to the wines, (think acid and mineral). Wine has been grown in South Africa since the 1650s, but only recently with the ending of Apartheid, has the industry been able to thrive. Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Colombard are the most grown varietals. Drank this one, on its own, chilled and unpaired. Remember to drink this now - SvB is best when young. ~$16 | #sauvingnonblanc #southafricanwine #fridaynightwhites
On the eyes: Pale light yellow, clear, light stain, med tears, no gas/floc.
On the nose: Delicate gooseberry and quince, sweet lychee, some floral notes and wet slate. Med alcohol.
On the tongue: Med+ acid, light tannin, med alcohol, juicy and round. Quince, asian pear, persimmon, and lychee rounding out to a bit of leafy notes and high mineralty. Really nice, long, pleasant finish. Not your classic SvB! — 5 years ago
Black cherries and plum. Dark but not heavy. Solid red, would be an excellent table wine, and great chilled. Grew a lot on me over time. — 4 days ago
