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. Drink 2019-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100

'Subtly oaked 2017 offers early complexity, with dried peach & earthy undertone. Fine integration of acid with fruit for lively & compelling full, sweet flavour (but bone-dry). No 2016. Also in magnum.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Grapes from a 1971 vineyard. Fermented and matured for 12 months in barrel, some new. The nose shows top notes of hay, fynbos and flowers before citrus and peach. The palate has a good core of fruit plus vibrant acidity before a savoury finish. Nicely proportioned – not too lean, not too fat.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 93/100

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.
