`Grapes from Stellenbosch. 20% whole-bunch fermentation. 30% matured in clay. The nose is still rather primary but pretty with notes of strawberry, cranberry, raspberry, rose and white pepper while the palate shows pure fruit, zippy acidity and powdery tannins. Lovely clarity and plenty of refreshment factor.` – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

`The Foundry Grenache Noir 2020 has a youthful vivid ruby hue. Still youthful on the nose there is a distinctive floral fleshy fruit quality with lifted floral, pomegranate and fynbos (garrigue, wild herbs) notes. The palate is medium bodied with intense crushed red fruit, pink- peppery spiciness and an intricate fairy-dust like tannic structure giving it focus and length . Persistant on the finish, this is delicious now and should improve and evolve for up to 10 years.` – The Foundry
