2019 Viognier, The Foundry, Stellenbosch

This Viognier is one of South Africa’s finest. It comes from the farm next door to Meerlust in Stellenbosch, from a cool, maritime site. And that makes it a savoury, restrained example: more akin to top Condrieu than most of South Africa’s rich, jammy examples.

2019 Viognier, The Foundry, Stellenbosch
The Foundry

Founded in 2001 by Chris Williams and James Reid, their first vintage had to be made in an old blacksmith’s forge when there wasn’t enough space in the cellar they were borrowing. And so the name was born. Chris’ day job is winemaker at Meerlust, while James owns a vineyard on the legendary Voor Paardeberg. His white Rhône varieties are some of the best anywhere, finding texture without heaviness.
