Notes

Keermont Vineyards is a boutique wine estate set in the naturally-formed amphitheatre between the Helderberg and Stellenbosch mountain ranges. They aim to grow wines that reflect the natural wonders of this beautiful place.

Tasting notes:
'Even though it comes from an old block, planted as long ago as 1971, this is the first release of this wine under a Keermont label, as it used to go to De Trafford. Apple pie and honey flavours are embellished with old wood and a savoury, leesy finish. A brilliant début. 2019-27.' – Tim Atkin SA Report 2018, 95/100

'The 2017 Riverside Chenin Blanc comes from the oldest block on the farm, planted in 1972. It was fermented in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels and then spent a further 12 months maturing on the lees. It has a fragrant bouquet of yellow flowers, honeysuckle, Cornice pear and light stony aromas. The palate is well balanced with satisfying weight on the entry. I appreciate the waxy texture here and the pithiness toward the finish; hints of sour lemon, sherbet and light ginger/rhubarb appear on the aftertaste. Enjoy this Chenin over the next decade.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 91/100
