Radford Dale Nudity Syrah 2015
Radford Dale was founded in 1998 by Burgundian-trained Englishman Alex Dale. The wines have become increasingly good in recent years, thanks to a more ‘naked’ approach and less reliance on oak. This outstanding Syrah comes from a single, east-facing organic block of granite on the eastern side of the Paardeberg mountain. No additions were made during fermentation, and ageing was conducted in three- and four-year-old oak on lees, helping the wine to mature in a reductive environment without sulphur.
