Radford Dale is one of South Africa’s leading independent wineries. Based on the Helderberg Mountain in Stellenbosch, they specialize in producing site-specific, natural wines.

A first for Radford Dale, this “Zero Sulphite” Syrah represents the culmination of everything they have learnt over many years of natural viticulture and non-interventionist winemaking. By leaving every process in the capable hands of Mother Nature, they produce a wine which reflects every aspect of its origin, the variety and the vintage, in as clear a manner as is possible. Free of any additions or treatments, it is undressed and totally natural. The result is a wonderfully expressive, complex and elegant wine.

The nose beams dark red fruits, complex spice and herbal aromas. Layers of red and black fruit, over a strong graphite note and super supple tannins make for a fantastically engaging palate. The wine leaves one with a clean, fresh and wholesome impression. It's a fantastic pairing for hearty dishes like stews and roasts.

About the Winery

Radford Dale

Radford 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.

Grapes from an organically farmed Voor Paardeberg vineyard. With no sulphites added during the winemaking process, this is now submitted as an “alternative red” in terms of classification. A complex nose of black fruit, lavender, liquorice, fresh herbs, earth and spice. The palate is lean with super-high acidity and grippy tannins. Striking in its angularity, this will appeal to the geeks…
