The grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted to ensure absolute quality before pressing.  Once the grapes were whole bunch pressed the juice was transferred to barrel where it underwent spontaneous natural fermentation.  The wine was matured in various sizes of French oak barrels. Very little new oak was used so that the elegance of the wine could be retained.  Once racked, blended and bottled the wine was aged for an additional 1 month before release.  Through early picking, soft handling and thoughtful use of oak, Radford Dale have produced a wine which shows the finesse that good Chardonnay should possess.

The wine shows an intriguing array of citrus and floral notes on the nose with stone fruit and tapered acidity on the palate.
