Radford Dale Thirst Gamay Noir 2022

SKU: RD208A-22
This rare Gamay is lean and light but by no means simple. The palate displays supple tannins that provide texture, expressive red fruits on the nose and palate, herbaceous tomato-leaf and a fantastic length. Utterly smashable and the perfect Summer red.

Radford Dale was founded in 1998 when Ben Radford and Alex Dale first made wines together. We believe in combining innovation with a healthy respect for tradition. In other words, our approach is old plus new, and the best of both worlds. We specialise in the mountainous viticultural sub-regions of the Helderberg area in Stellenbosch, Elgin, and the Perderberg area in the Swartland. This is a fancy way of saying that we work with grapes from all of these areas – the right grapes for the right wines (rather than growing all the fruit on our property). We believe winemaking is all about individuality. We also believe strongly in the Cape’s ability to produce great wines with inimitable character. Just like the people who live here. We want our chosen varieties to express the extraordinary array of terroirs that nurtured them – with precious little intervention from us. This sense of “place” is often lost in modern winemaking, where too much emphasis is focused on commercialism, medals and other frilly stuff imposed by the winemaker or, worse still, by the marketing department. We want to give our wines a chance to express their own individuality. How? By working as naturally as possible in the vineyards, employing traditional methods, and manipulating things as little as possible in the cellar.
