The Foundry Roussanne come from a small parcel of vines grown on granite soils and is an age worthy example of this excellent grape variety. It has great complexity with fleshy fruit notes, mineral aromas and a savoury edge. There is lovely white peach and pear fruit in its youth and richer lemon notes on the palate along with a wonderful roundness. Well worth ageing if you can keep your hands off it.

The Foundry is one of South Africa’s most exiting wineries. It was established in 2001 by Chris Williams and James Reid. Chris combined his work at the Foundry between 2004 and 2019 with his full-time job as cellar master at Meerlust Estate where he was making some of South Africa’s finest wines. The Foundry is now based at James’s family farm at Paardeberg at Staart and is Chris’s focus now. Fruit is sourced from a variety of excellent vineyards which Chris has long term contracts with. Some are just for specific rows within a vineyard such is Chris’s desire to source the finest possible fruit. These wines will just keep getting better.
