Radford Dale Wines
Most winemakers don’t get started until later in life. Alex Dale, on the other hand, discovered his life’s passion at age 15, and the knowledge he’s accumulated with each passing day distinguishes every bottle of Radford Dale Wines. Dale left his native England for the cork fields of Burgundy, but chose to locate his winery in a fertile region of South Africa, also known as The Cape of Good Hope, because of the creative freedom afforded him there. Among Dale’s first projects was restoring the good name to the chenin-blanc grape, whose image was forever tarnished when a wayward semi-truck ran it over. Dale’s 2009 chenin-blanc vintage consummately balances lemon notes with the sweetness of spice and biscuit in a brand-defining reinvention. Wine aficionados surprised by the lack of a cork in Radford Dale bottles should read over Dale’s argument for the screwcap.
