Notes

'The 2014 Keermont Syrah is blended with 4% Mourvedre and matured for 20 months in barrel with two rackings. It offers quite a bold bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, wild hedgerow and raspberry preserve scents. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe red berries, sage and white pepper, just a hint of garrigue (wild fennel and white pepper) towards the finish. There is a impressive detail in this Syrah, perhaps a little more body than the 2013 (a cooler vintage), and it should offer 10-12 years of pleasure. Drink: 2018 - 2028.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 90/100

Keermont Syrah 2014 is a blend of three different Syrah vineyard sites growing on Keermont Vineyards: Steepside Syrah: Growing on a North facing slope in deep, red clay-rich soils; this vineyard generally produces powerful full bodied wines with rich, spicy flavours. Topside Syrah: An unirrigated west facing vineyard planted at 400m above sea level on rocky sandstone-based soil. Topside Syrah is usually a more aromatic wine with good structure and natural acid. Sweetwater Syrah: Situated in a rocky valley below the Fleurfontein spring, this is the coolest of the three Syrah sites and ripens the latest. Sweetwater Syrah is normally lighter and elegant in style with a herbal aroma.

All grapes used in producing our wines are grown on Keermont Vineyards. Small parcels of grapes are specifically selected according to ripeness, harvested by hand and vinified separately. This process is carried out gently and naturally in open top fermenters using traditional methods only. This wine spent 20 months maturing in seasoned 500 and 225 Litre French oak barrels before being bottled by hand without filtration on 3 December 2015. We produced 14116 bottles and 104 magnums.

Tasting notes:
The Keermont Syrah 2014 has a warm strawberry red colour. It has an enchanting bouquet of violets, dusty sandal wood and a hint of spicy red fruit. The palate is elegant and soft, and has a clean linear acidity. It has a strong floral character with spicy red fruit and hints of cherry sherbet. The tannins are dusty and dry and the wine has a long earthy herbal finish. Drink 2016 - 2026.
