Rickety Bridge wine estate is undoubtedly one of the most progressive boutique wineries in the Cape. The historic wine making cellar was recently renovated and converted into a barrel fermentation centre, the new winery was built and modern cooling equipment was installed. Shadowed by the Dassenberg mountains, the mild Franschhoek valley is the perfect canvas for new winemaker Wynand Grobler to create a portfolio of outstanding Franschhoek wines. The Foundation Stone range is named after the cornerstone of the original ‘Rickety Bridge’ which straddles the Franschhoek River, ushering one into the estate.

This intriguing blend of Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Tannat and Viognier is silky soft on the palate with succulent tannins and notes of white pepper, red fruit, chocolate and cherry tobacco on the nose. Goes great with grilled and BBQ food as Orlando discovered last year.

Malolactic fermentation took place in older 225L and 500L French oak barrels. All six varietals were matured separately in barrel for a total maturation time of 15 months.
