Radford Dale Organic Estate is situated on 20 hectares of prime viticultural land, at altitude, in the heart of the incredible cool-climate Elgin Valley, in the Mountains between Stellenbosch and Hermanus in South Africa. Here, they focus on the production of organic Elgin Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet-Franc and Semillon.

Elgin has the highly favorable attributes of ample rain, cooler temperatures, ancient, gravelly, free draining and mineral rich Bokkeveld shale soils, altitude and proximity to the ocean, meaning that the wines we make on our Estate here are expressions of purity and finesse. The summit of Radford Dale.

This wine marks their maiden vintage from the Estate at Radford Dale Organic, in cool-climate Elgin. Aptly named Touchstone, it refers both to the exceptional geology in which their vines are planted as well as to the stylistic inspiration point of Burgundy, where Alex Dale grew-up. These unique Bokkeveld Shale soils, characterised by a clay top layer and rich in minerals, impart a remarkable elegance to the wine.

The nose has vibrant flavors of lime, green citrus, and lemon sherbet that burst onto the palate with refreshing zest. There is a delicate hint of Crème Brulée, slate and gentle oak spice. Tension and a fresh acidity weave through the palate, adding a lively and invigorating drive that keeps the palate engaged with persistence. We recommend pairing with shellfish, grilled flaky white fish, or mild, semi-soft cheeses like Gouda.
