'The 2019 is very much in the mould of its predecessors. Aromatically, the immediate impression is of red and black fruit plus intense black pepper but there are also notes of lavender, fynbos, olive and earth while the palate presents as lean, sour and grippy – wild at heart, to coin a phrase, and that’s either your thing or it isn’t.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

The aromatics immediately draw a comparison to fine Northern Rhône examples. Notes of blood orange, ruby grapefruit, pepper spice, wild herbs and black olive with a meaty, elusive complexity that constantly pulls you back for more. The palate is electric – a citric, vibrant acidity creates a backbone of energy, followed by notes of vivid, black olive, meat spices and tangy, red berries. Light- to medium-bodied, with low alcohol, it is clearly a wine in its purest form. Be sure to decant to avoid a mouthful of unfiltered goodness. – James Pietersen (Mar 2021)

'A first for Radford Dale, this “Zero Sulphite” Syrah represents the culmination of everything we have learnt over many years about natural viticulture and non-interventionist winemaking. By leaving every process in the capable hands of Mother Nature, we 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 fynbos 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. Could this be the naked truth…?' – Winemaker
