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:
'One of the Cape’s very best Syrahs comes from a 1.7-hectare vineyard on sandstone. Made with 30% whole bunches, it’s elegant, subtle and poised, with lots of fynbos perfume and more grip than you think at first. 2019-28.' – Tim Atkin SA Report 2018, 96/100

'The 2015 Topside Syrah comes from dry-farmed vines on decomposed granite and sandstone soils at 350-400 meters above sea level. It spent 20 months maturing in seasoned 500-liter French oak barrels before being bottled by hand without filtration. It has a perfumed, Côte-Rôtie-like bouquet of detailed blackberry, briar and light iris aromas, and just a little chalkiness in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiseled tannin, a fine line of acidity and a linear, structured, gently grippy finish with hints of Provençal herbs on the sustained aftertaste. An outstanding Syrah from Keermont.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 94/100
