Radford Dale Black Rock 2019

By , 16 May 2022

A key feature of the Swartland red blend that is Black Rock from Radford Dale is that the constituent varieties are co-fermented. During the drought vintages of 2016, 2017 and 2018, the wine was Cinsault driven but 2019 sees Syrah to the fore at 60% combined with 17% Cinsault, 10% Mourvèdre, 8% Carignan and 5% Grenache.

Aromatics are wild with pronounced notes of fynbos, meat and spice to go with red and black berries while the palate shows dense fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins, the finish super-savoury. Lots of rugged flavour. Price: R350 a bottle.

CE’s rating: 92/100.
