Since 2019 we have been recording our own Butlers Podcast. It was my idea trying to do something no one else was really doing in the wine world at the time and it grew from there.

Our niece Evie does the intros and outros for us and Henry and I record them all on my iphone in one take. 

We discuss wine trends, different regions or grape varieties, wine producing countries etc plus a few random things when I get distracted.

The Foundry Roussanne 2020

 Established in 2000, The Foundry is the brainchild of Meerlust cellar-master, Chris Williams, in partnership with his  long-term buddy, James Reid. Owning no vineyards, The Foundry works closely with a handful of growers across the Cape to secure grapes from sites which are best suited to each of the varieties Chris works with.

Until the 2019  vintage, all were vinified, matured and bottled at the Meerlust cellar in Stellenbosch where Chris had been  Cellarmaster since 2004. Having resigned his position at the end of 2019, The Foundry has upped-sticks and  relocated to Staart in the Voor Paardeberg, the farm owned by the Reid family. With the cellar on the property refurbished.

The Roussanne is sourced from a one hectare vineyard across the road from the Meerlust front gates.

The grapes for this vintage were hand harvested, chilled overnight and then whole bunch pressed to avoid phenolics typical of this variety.

The wine is full of bright fruit with great concentration - white pear, white flowers, stone fruit and some savoury aromas. On the palate, it is fresh, with bright acidity, followed by lemon curd, tinned peaches and fresh dough. It finishes off with crystalline minerality and rounded texture all while being super clean. 

Superb!
