Radford Dale, Nudity Syrah 2019 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Voor Paardeberg
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
