'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

Producer information 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.
