The Foundry Syrah 2016
Chris Williams was the winemaker at Meerlust for many years before he started The Foundry in 2001. They were right at the forefront of the growing movement of South Africa, towards terroir-driven wine making without over-extraction and not too manipulation.
This is a single vineyard Syrah wine that has been aged in French oak (of which 15% is new) for a total of 16 months. It is very much an old world style Syrah rather than a new world shiraz fruit bomb with delicious savoury undertones.
