Roussanne 2020, The Foundry, Voor Paardeberg
Distinctive and intense aromas of wild flowers, oatmeal and lemon-cream. The palate is lively and
intense with quince and yellow apple flavours, hints of spice and linear acidity.
The Foundry Wine Collection was established on a shoestring budget in 2001 by Chris Williams and his great friend James Reid. With plenty of blood, sweat and tears, developing The Foundry into a leading exponent of the New South Africa wine revolution, gaining numerous accolades and awards for their site specific, terroir defined wines.
Sourced from one of the few Roussanne vineyards in South Africa, this 1 hectare planting in Stellenbosch is on well-weathered Helderberg Granite soils. Hand harvested, chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed to avoid phenolics typical of this variety.
