Radford Dale Chenin Blanc, old bush vines, bruised apple, ripe, honeyed, top South African Chenin. Chenin Blanc from old bush vines on the Helderberg mountain. This is a recipe for delicious wine with notes of bruised apple and very ripe stone fruit, sweet honey and blossom. The wine is entirely fermented in barrels and then matured for around 9 months although no new wood is used. Very tasty white wine for Pate de Fois and some sweet fruit chutney or full flavoured fish dishes.

Radford Dale combines modern winemaking and traditional values to create some of the finest, rarest wines in the Cape. It’s all about quality, and the philosophy is simple: to produce reference South African wines with as little pretense and compromise as possible.

These wines are strongly site-driven, natural and balanced. Radford Dale believe South African wine should reflect the individuality of the local terroirs, rather than being driven by the globalisation and flavour standardisation of a medal-winning mentality.

Whilst the wines are without doubt fruity, rich and full bodied, there is more personality here than in many of their Cape contemporaries.
