Radford Dale The Antidote Gamay 2019
“A triumph for SA Gamay. Extremely rare in South Africa and absolutely delicious!”
Gamay, the much loved varietal of Beaujolais (France), is rare in SA and these grapes come from one of only a handful of vineyards in production totalling less than 10 hectares. All of the fruit comes from a single 21 year old vineyard located in Stellenbosch.
The grapes were hand-picked at dawn to capture freshness and acidity while retaining elegance in the flavour expression.
The wine was matured for 12 months in older French oak barrels (3rd and 4th fill)
The tannins are soft yet have just enough grip to define a subtle, lingering finish.
An absolute one of a kind wine, totally individual.
