Stunning Bordeaux blend. One of the Cape's best. "Pure class" - Neal Martin, tweet, April 2016. The 2012 is fabulous. It's so fine, with gentle sweetness, yet good grip. It develops classy cedary, tobacco aromas over an hour or two of being open. "This is a game changing portfolio of wines. Superstardom awaits this modest, young man of wine." - Matthew Jukes, MoneyWeek, 21 November 2014 Decant it to get the best from it, allowing the flavours to develop. It will be a great wine to have laid down. This wine exudes complex aromas of ripe cherry, wild berries, a touch of cedar and tobacco, and dusty 'fynbos. The palate has an array of ripe berries, cherry sherbet, crushed herbs and spices. Elegant but firm tannin affords the wine a long dry succulent finish. Drink 2014-2030.


Tasting Notes

The Keermont is our Estate flagship red blend. The core of the wine is based on the original older blocks of Homestead Cabernet Sauvignon and Steepside Merlot to which we have added barrels from our newer sites. All grapes used in producing our wines are grown on Keermont Vineyards. Most of the vineyard parcels grow on deep red clay rich soil derived from sandstone and granite and are surrounded by indigenous vegetation. They lie between 250 and 400 meters above sea level in the valley between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountain ranges and have a variety of aspects from North East to West facing. Small batches 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 22 months maturing in French oak barrels (20% new) before being bottled by hand without filtration on 14 January 2014. 11 687 bottles and 98 magnums were produced. Decant it to get the best from it allowing the flavours to develop. It will be a great wine to have laid down.
