Tasting notes:
'Alex Starey's Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a single vineyard called Cottage Lane, located on the crest of a hill at 350 metres. Blended with 11% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec, this is scented, serious and concentrated, all cassis and blood orange flavours with dense tannins, stylish wood and the balance and definition of the 2017 vintage. Drink 2022-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot. Classic aromatics of cassis, some leafiness and pencil shavings. The palate is full with firm tannins – a powerful, pleasantly rustic wine (alcohol is 15%).' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

'Dark ruby red in colour, this is quite a serious vintage with a complex bouquet of ripe red berry fruit, cedar wood, and typical ‘fynbos’ flowers. The palate is full bodied, but gentle. Tannin structure is full and dense and coats the palate while the natural acidity keeps the ripe fruit in check. Savoury notes of tomato paste and cloves add character to the bright red strawberry and cassis flavours which linger into a long, tight finish. Drink 2020 – 2035.' – Winemaker

About Keermont:
Keermont must be SA’s most under-the-radar winery. Besides the wines being excellent and produced in minute quantities, we are astounded by the value they offer. Alongside Kanonkop, Delaire and Reyneke, Keermont is the only other Stellenbosch property to be counted among Tim Atkin’s 15 First Growths. Already recognised as a producer of benchmark Syrah, the estate is tucked away in the Upper Blaauwklippen Valley – an area of Syrah fame spanning Kleinood, Waterford and De Trafford. 'If you want to see the new South Africa and catch a glimpse of what the future beholds, then look no further than Keermont,’ says Neal Martin.
