'The Grenache Blanc 2020 as made by Chris Williams of The Foundry is a smart vintage of what is usually a smart wine. In some years, it can embellished with a little sweetness – due to partial natural ferment – but this time around, residual sugar is a mere 1.55 g/l. The wine is, however, not short of weight and texture, 30% of the wine being vinified in 1000-litre dolium (terracotta vessel). The nose shows floral perfume, pear and peach plus a little spice while the palate is medium bodied with bright acidity and savoury finish. There’s a lovely succulence about it and while very tempting now, it should be drinking even better in 12 months’ time.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

'Lifted floral aromas with hints of lemon cream and white stone fruit. The palate is rich but restrained with focused, pure fruit, minerally mid palate with characteristic rich, fleshy mouthfeel and texture and has a long finish with a citrus tang.' – Chris Williams, Winemaker
