Another relatively new wine to the Radford Dale stable, and their third expression of Gamay Noir. It’s a variety they hold in high esteem and this bottling – in part - comes from the first plantings of Gamay in over 20 years and a site they have established on the Polkadraai hills. This site will also serve as the mother block for quality cuttings going forward, which they will 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 plate shows medium weight with ripe elderberry and soft tannin that draws into a rewardingly full finish.
