2022 | Stellenbosch
Another relatively new wine to the Radford Dale stable, and our third expression of Gamay Noir. It’s a variety we hold in high esteem and this bottling – in part - comes from the first plantings of Gamay in over 20 years & a site we have established on the Polkadraai hills. This site will also serve as the mother block for quality cuttings going forward, which we’ll use for a new vineyard at our organic Elgin farm. There are less than 10 hectares of Gamay currently planted in the Cape.
Deep purple, with a Violet rim. Aromatic mulberry and raspberry notes over a little hint of gunflint. Generous and juicy, the palate shows medium weight with ripe elderberry and soft tannin that draws into a rewardingly full finish.
A note on sustainability: in line with Radford Dale's increasing focus on sustainable business practices, all the Vinum wines are bottled in eco-friendly, lightweight glass (396 gm) with recyclable screw caps.
