Thirst Gamay 2023 - Radford Dale

One of our OG faves is back for its 2023 vintage. Thirst Gamay is the ultimate light-bodied chillable red that's full of light and bright red berry fruitiness but with plenty of complex tannin texture.

The grapes is picked early with optimum ripeness from some of South Africa's only Gamay vines. Whole bunch carbonic maceration follows, before basket pressing for a brilliantly expressive fruit nose.

Radford Dale are becoming known for the refreshing wines they produce on South Africa's Western Cape, and this one's here to carry the summer all the way to the end of the year.

Founded in 1998, the South African brand Radford Dale is the brainchild of Alex Dale, a Brit, and Ben Radford, an Aussie, who have many years of winemaking experience between them. They set up the brand with the sole intention of producing high-quality wines from vineyards spread across the Western Cape, and they sure have succeeded!

Combining a keen pursuit of innovation and a healthy respect for tradition, they produce refined, elegant wines with complete individuality. Saying they prefer to follow the wisdom of the earth rather than the whims of mere mortals, they grow only those varietals of grapes that suit the terrior which give their wines are strong sense of place and make them really special, resulting in stunning wines like our fave Thirst Gamay.

Radford Dale are known for their ethical, eco-friendly, and low intervention vinification methods, and are proud champions of both nature and the people they work with. They don't make wine for praise or commerciality; they just do whatever is needed to make wines that speak for themselves and where they're from.
