The Foundry Wine Collection was established on a shoestring budget in 2001 by Chris Williams and his great friend James Reid. With plenty of blood, sweat and tears, developing The Foundry into a leading exponent of the New South Africa wine revolution, gaining numerous accolades and awards for their site specific, terroir defined wines.
The Foundry Viognier 2016 is pale in colour, clear and bright with a pronounced greenish hue. The nose is exotic with expressive apricot, spring blossom and creamy citrus nose, but remains elegant and perfumed. These flavours follow through onto the palate which is dense with ripe crushed fresh fruit, succulent juiciness and finishes with a mineral steeliness which makes this wine ideal with food. There is a line of natural acidity running through the wine maintaining freshness and focus.
An Asian-style corn salad would be a great match with this aromatic wine.
