Vinum by Radford Dale has championed the merits of Chenin Blanc before it was cool to do so, striving to showcase transparency of top vineyard sites and varietal character ahead of everyone else. The core barrel component of this bottling comes from a site planted in 1969 (a site wholly supplying their flagship Chenin, Radford Dale 'Renaissance').
Pale straw with a touch of gold around the rim. Ripe pear and melon meld together and combine with stonedust to create an enticing nose. The palate shows juicy, yellow stone fruit with a highlight of litchis before bracing acidity brings it to a crisp and taut mid palate. The finish is marked by an intriguing fresh and salty kiss.
