The Foundry Grenache Blanc 2021 75cl


Tasting Note

Floral aromas with hints of lemon cream and white stone fruit. The palate is rich but restrained with focused, pure fruit, minerally mid palate with characteristic rich, fleshy mouthfeel and texture and has a long finish with a citrus tang.


Established in 2000, The Foundry is the brainchild of Meerlust cellar-master, Chris Williams, in partnership with his long-term buddy, James Reid. Owning no vineyards, The Foundry works closely with a handful of growers across the Cape to secure grapes from sites which are best suited to each of the varieties Chris works with. Until the 2019 vintage, all were vinified, matured and bottled at the Meerlust cellar in Stellenbosch where Chris had been Cellarmaster since 2004. Having resigned his position at the end of 2019, The Foundry has upped-sticks and relocated to Staart in the Voor Paardeberg, the farm owned by the Reid family.
