Tasting Notes

"From fruit picked right at the outset of a global pandemic, not merely challenging but during a time of naiveté and so much unknown. Nevertheless the team at Radford Dale did their due diligence for the négoce team of Nicholas Pearce and Will Predhomme and if this is not the richest most forward chenin they have made to date then it can’t be sure how any further vintages could ever take this to eleven. Just enough tension mind you but less cracker material than previous incantations exuded by lightning strikes. Winemaker extraordinaire Jacques de Klerk clearly listened to the vintage wind and global situation by stuffing this Old Vine ’20 with all the love and generosity it so deserved. Not suggesting the lack of tasting trials participation uncluttered de Klerk's mind but this is a very good vintage of this consistently well made wine. Drink 2021-2024."

"Pearce and Predhomme sure know how to pick 'em, so to speak. This small negociant label from Toronto agent and sommelier Nicholas Pearce and Will Predhomme seem to consistently nail this old vine, wild ferment chenin blanc of Stellenbosch origins . Heather, hay , pear and apple are generously served up on the palate with notes of white flower that trail on the finish. Featuring impressive depth of flavour for the price. Widely appealing style with excellent length."

91 Points - Sara d'Amato, September 2021 (2020 Vintage)

"Another terrifically balanced vintage for Pearce & Predhomme's old vine chenin collaborative effort with Radford Dale in Stellenbosch, showing the customary ripe, yellow fleshed orchard fruit profile on a rivetingly dry, firm and taught frame. I love those balanced, juicy acids and the lingering finish, where a light spike of acetic acid emerges. Solid value yet again. Drink or hold into the mid-'20s."

90 Points - John Szabo, MS, Tasted September, 2021 (2020 Vintage)
