Notes

Keermont Cabernet grows in their Cottage Lane Vineyard on the mid-slopes of the Helderberg. This vineyard is situated on the crest of a ridge (320m above sea level) so has aspects ranging from East through North to West. It is very exposed resulting in small vines with low yields. This has allowed them to make a relatively fine grained Cabernet, but the clay soils translate to a wine with power, tension and fresh acidity. They blend in a couple of barrels of other varieties to add to the complexity of flavour and tannin structure.

Tasting notes:
'Keermont's Cabernet Sauvignon sometimes gets overlooked by people who want to buy one of the estate's stunning Syrahs, but they can be very good indeed. This is a blend with 13% Malbec and Cabernet Franc that shows the concentration and low yields of the vintage with supple red berry and mulberry fruit, some spice and balancing acidity. 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 92/100
