This collaboration between Chris Williams (Meerlust cellarmaster) and wine partner James Reid. The Syrah was a five-star wine in the 2004 edition of Platter’s Wine Guide, the Grenache Blanc a five-star in the 2015 edition. UK winewriter Jancis Robinson highlights The Foundry as ‘one to watch’. Chris has succeeded marvelously in his quest to find ‘pockets of viticultural excellence, allow the grapes to ripen optimally and coax them into great wine’. The release of the maiden Grenache Noir from a ‘meticulous’ grower completes their stable of Rhône wines, ‘a vindication of our commitment to these varieties in the Cape’.
