RADFORD DALE RENAISSANCE OF CHENIN
- Chenin Blanc
- Radford Dale
Since our first vintage of Renaissance we have learnt so much about how to truly reflect the character of this beautiful variety, Chenin Blanc. Through deeper understanding of the vineyard, rather than manipulating the wine we have been able to create a wine that reflects its site through freshness, elegance, finesse and purity. Often shunned and disrespected by winemakers and consumers alike, there is, in certain worthy quarters, an ascending realisation of the tremendous potential of this grape, Chenin Blanc - South Africa’s most noble grape. As devotees of true character and finesse often swim upstream against the populous tide, a fresh generation of Chenin producers is bringing to the surface some of the most interesting, bright, mineral and idiosyncratic wines of the Cape.
