The Foundry Grenache Noir 2020


Christian Eedes (Winemag): “Grapes from Stellenbosch. 20% whole-bunch fermentation. 30% matured in clay. The nose is still rather primary but pretty with notes of strawberry, cranberry, raspberry, rose and white pepper while the palate shows pure fruit, zippy acidity and powdery tannins. Lovely clarity and plenty of refreshment factor. 92/100.”

This label was established in 2001, Chris made the first vintage at Joostenberg Wines in an old farm workshop that became affectionately known as “The Foundry”. He made a single Stellenbosch Syrah in that first year and has slowly added wines over the next decade and a half to end up with five wines in the range. Up until 2019 the wines were made at Meerlust where Chris was also the head winemaker. As of vintage 2020 he has moved fulltime into The Foundry, based on the Voor-Paardeberg next to the Grenache Blanc vineyard.
