2007 The Foundry Syrah Stellenbosch
The Foundry Wine Collection was established on a shoestring budget in 2001 by Chris Williams, former winemaker at Meerlust, and his great friend James Reid, MD of Accolade wines SA. With plenty of blood, sweat and tears, they have developed 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 enticingly perfumed bouquet is exotic with hints of wild herbs, violets, plum fruit and has a pronounced savoury and spicy character. The palate is intense and rich with generous ripe fruit and structured, silky tannins. There is a delicious, lingering, fruit and spice aftertaste.
