Radford Dale Chardonnay

Radford Dale Chardonnay holds instant appeal to Chardonnay lovers with its bold, assertive apricot and lemon aromas and its intense, yet nuanced palate. A generous palate weight and perfect balance along with a smooth, buttery texture mean that it can be paired with a variety of dishes.

Fruit from two exceptional, ocean facing sites on the foothills of the Helderberg is used for this Chardonnay. With the vines now 22 years old, the wine that these vines produce shows the typical intensity that one can expect from mature Chardonnay vineyards. The crunchy, granite derived soiltype (Clovelly) imparts a lovely, flinty minerality to the wine and proximity to sea means the wine naturally possesses a bracing freshness.

It’s hard to describe something this praiseworthy without sounding flashy or over the top, so we’re just going to say it like it is: these wines are seriously classy.  

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 our 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. They believe South African wines should reflect the individuality of the local terroirs, rather than being driven by the globalisation and flavour standardisation of a medal-winning mentality. Why? Because this kind of competitive mindset is making a mockery of individuality, and causing wines from countries all over the world to taste more and more alike.

They believe winemaking is all about individuality. They also believe strongly in the Cape’s ability to produce great wines with inimitable character. Just like the people who live here. They want our chosen varieties to express the extraordinary array of terroirs that nurtured them – with precious little intervention. 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. They want to give their 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.
