Description

The Foundry Syrah 2012 is deep, opaque  bright purple-ruby in colour. The enticingly  perfumed bouquet is exotic with hints of wild herbs, violets, plum fruit and has a pronounced savoury and spicy character. The palate is intense and rich with generous ripe fruit and structured, silky  tannins. There is a delicious, lingering, fruit and spice aftertaste.

The  grapes were sourced from a single vineyard of Syrah situated only 3 km from False Bay on the chilly Atlantic Ocean. The vineyards are planted on low vigour, well drained, granitic origin soils. The vines are managed to retain a healthy balance between grape production and growth and the crop was reduced to 5 tons per hectare. The mature vines are naturally low yielding and all damaged or unripe grapes were removed before harvest.  The fruit was uniformly ripe and was picked on the basis of analysis, taste and vine physiology.

Made in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
