About the Winery
Radford DaleRadford Dale and The Winery of Good Hope are two brands made by the same people, in the same winery. The team behind these wineries has been an industry leader since the 1990s in chemical free farming, and more recently in low and no sulfur winemaking. They are a founding member of PIWOSA (Premium Independent Wineries of South Africa) which sets ethical, environmental and social uplift standards. Recognizing the social inequality present in South Africa Radford Dale has also set up a trust called Land of Hope to help facilitate bright futures for children, focusing heavily on education.
Alex Dale who owns and manages both projects is an Englishman who grew up spending summers in Burgundy, France. He moved there in his late teens to follow a passion for winemaking and also opened a wine bar in Beaune. He lived in Burgundy for many years before moving to South Africa in 1998, starting Radford Dale with Ben Radford, an Australian. The idea was to produce wines using modern techniques and technology with a healthy respect for tradition, something Alex came to understand well while living in Burgundy.Wines are made with minimal intervention in order to best express each vineyard’s individuality.

Natural yeast fermented and aged in neutral oak, this Stellenbosch chenin pours bright, fairly deep lemon-gold. It has very generous and detailed nose of peach pie, lemon, subtle honey and billowing florality. It is medium-full bodied, creamy and almost satiny with generous fruit on the palate, some warmth, bitterness and excellent to outstanding length. A touch saline on the finish.
