About The Foundry 2016 Rousanne, South Africa

Sourced from one of the few Roussanne vineyards in South Africa, this two and a half acre planting in Stellenbosch is on well-weathered Helderberg Granite soils. Trellised and spur pruned, this vineyard produced 2.2 tons per acre in 2016. Grapes were hand harvested, chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed to avoid phenolics typical of this variety. Juice with a high solids content fermented in seasoned 75 gallon Allier oak barrels with partial malolactic fermentation. The wine aged sur-lie with batonnage (lees stirring) for 8 months before bottling.

The  Foundry  Roussanne 2016 has distinctive and intense aromas of wild flowers and lemon-cream. The palate is lively and intense with quince and yellow apple  flavors, hints of spice and lively acidity. Typical varietal texture rounds out the palate before persistent length and a long, clean finish. Limited!!
