Description

Each parcel of these vines is situated on ocean-facing, mountain slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. These more mild maritime areas of Stellenbosch benefit from the cooling influence of the ocean breezes and the relative altitude. All grapes are then hand-picked and hand-sorted to ensure only the best bunches make the final blend. Instead of producing the super ripe and overblown wines that seem to dominate the premium red blend category, Radford Dale’s aim with Gravity has always been to craft a complex and seamless blend reflecting the fine balance between fruit ripeness and earthy vinosity that is achievable in this mountain vineyard.

TASTING NOTES

The exceptional structural integration of the tannin to the overall palate of the wine is its hallmark. Each varietal contributes its unique facet: the Syrah provides its persevering spiciness and its gutsy, supple body; the Cabernet offers its blueberry backbone and dense, ripe tannins; the Merlot brings deep red berry fruit and suave mouth-feel. All knitted together by patient maturation until the ensemble, as with all good blends, becomes more than the sum of its parts. The finish of the wine shows the maritime influence of False Bay in the guise of the fresh acidity and savoury minerality
