The Foundry Grenache Block was awarded Platter`s South African White of the year in 2015. The wine has 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.
The white grapes were pressed before the fermentation started at 18°C. The wine was fortified using natural grape spirit, which caused the fermentation to stop and left a sweet wine with 16% alcohol, relatively light in alcohol for a fortified wine. The wine was then aged for seven years in old, large oak barrels.
The wine shows notes of figs, blackberries & cinnamon, all held together by the gentle influence of French oak casks. This is a stunning red wine from a very well established winemaker in Chile and should be part of any serious enthusiast`s collection.
