Vinum Gamay Noir 2022

R203.00

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.

ANALYSIS: ALC 12% vol | TA 5.2 g/l | pH 3.57 | RS 2.2g/l

Description

Radford Dale’s Vinum began with two of the Cape’s most celebrated grapes, Chenin and Pinotage. Building on this legacy the range has now been expanded to incorporate four other wines, a Chardonnay, Gamay, Grenache noir and a Pinot Noir.

Aiming to be equally at home on bistro tables and wine shop shelves, the focus for Vinum is also to offer a major value proposition, as many of the details are similar to that of the premium Terroir range from Radford Dale. Similar or identical vineyard sites as well as viticultural practices and winemaking techniques are being employed. The delivery however is less cerebral and more about drinking pleasure. 

“All the wines in the new Radford Dale Vinum range; authentic and expressive of both origin and variety as well as great value.” Julia Harding MW.
