`Grapes from Stellenbosch. Fermented in 75% 300-litre barrels of which some 10% were new and 25% fermented in clay pots. Complex aromatics of citrus, peach pear, dried herbs, spice, earth and some yeasty complexity. Good depth and breadth on the palate with slight phenolic grip to the finish. This is a wonderfully layered wine that’s super-interesting to drink.` – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

`The Foundry Roussanne 2020 shows vivid fruit concentration and intensity from this cooler vintage. The wine shows intense white pear, floral and lifted mineral and savoury aromas. The palate displays bright, fresh acidity on entry, followed by white peach, lemon curd and bread dough and a very fine crystalline minerality and rounded fleshyness. Typical varietal texture rounds out the palate before persistent length and clean finish.` – The Foundry
