The richest of the three Pinots, the Alex Dale cuvee is produced in very limited quantities. At first shy, it opens up to fine red and dark fruits foiled by an earthy and savoury undertone. It is on the palate that this wine truly shines. It is more structured than the Freedom Pinot Noir and needs some coaxing in the glass, but is deeply rewarding with a long and detailed finish. It is textured and although light leaves a weighty impression. Best enjoyed from 2017 - 2025. – WC, tasted December 2015.

'The Pinot Noir designated as 'AD' in the Radford Dale range is only made in the best vintages and is intended to have long maturation potential.

From Elgin grapes, it’s a one-barrel cuvée exclusive to retailer Wine Cellar. The nose shows a not unpleasant note of reduction before red cherry, wild strawberry and even a little citrus as well as some earthiness. Fruit is extraordinarily pure, acidity fairly crackles through the wine and the tannins are very fine indeed. It’s light but perfectly proportioned and possesses just the right amount of polish. Among the very best in South Africa.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 92/100
