Tasting notes
A wine expressing the plush riper side of Pinotage with plumb, cherry and light spice notes while still reflecting a very subtle old-world tannin. Ready to drink now but will be good for the next five years. Pairs great with hearty and meaty dishes.

Vineyard
The vineyards of the region are found to be extended till the southeastern slopes of Paardeberg Inselberg and are located high in the mountains. This way, these vineyards benefit from the well-drained soils that are rich in potassium, which is an important nutrient for the maintenance of vine health. These, along with the deep root systems, are giving the healthier and stronger vines.

Vinification
Harvest took place during the last week of January and the first two weeks of February. Fermentation took around 12 days to complete, afterwards malolactic fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks. Maturation was in tank with a combination of French and American oak staves for 6 months.

Appellation
The majority of the grapes for these wines come from the Voor-Paardeberg Mountain (1 hr north of Cape Town) and a small portion from Stellenbosch as well. The wines were not aged in oak (except a small portion of the Shiraz). This small wine region with only 10 miles of vine growing area is located to the north of Paarl and is found to have an exceptional terroir. The major reason for this is the placement of this region and the soil composition along with the prevailing winds. These factors altogether give a specific quality to the wine grapes, thus giving rise to the elite wine range.

Estate
Radley & Finch is a range of varietal wines made by Thinus Kruger and Pascal Schildt. The name was inspired from the famous book: To Kill a Mockingbird, but unlike the serious nature of the book, these wines aim to reflect a typical and light-hearted style of wine true to the most enjoyed grape varieties originating in South Africa. The motto: Optimism, beats the pants off pessimism. We want these wines to be an honest path for wine drinkers to delve into the special world of premium South African wines over time.
