The Foundry Grenache Noir 2017


Region: Stellenbosch

Tasting note

“Deep, alluring, ruby colour. The nose displays a lovely fleshy red-fruit quality made complex with strawberry compote, a pinch of black pepper and a blood-orange note. A wine that is all about the mouthfeel, with fleshy characteristics supported by powdery, granitic mineral tannins. Drink 2019 – 2026.” – Greg Sherwood MW

“From Stellenbosch grapes, winemaking involved 30% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 11 months in a combination of old oak and tank. A captivating nose with a hint of smoky reduction before pomegranate, black berries, lavender, pepper and other spice. The palate shows great fruit density, fresh acidity and nicely grippy tannins. This comes across as particularly athletic – depth and power (alcohol: 14%) without sacrificing energy. Super stuff.” – Christian Eedes
