The Foundry Roussanne 2020


Christian Eedes, Winemag:
Grapes from Stellenbosch. Fermented in 75% 300-litre barrels of which some 10% were new and 25% fermented in clay pots. Complex aromatics of citrus, peach pear, dried herbs, spice, earth and some yeasty complexity. Good depth and breadth on the palate with slight phenolic grip to the finish. This is a wonderfully layered wine that’s super-interesting to drink.

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.
