From a block planted on Stellenbosch Mountain in 2006, this is a new wine from Keermont. The fact that it’s packaged in a Burgundy bottle gives a clue to the style of the wine: floral and savoury with notes of dried herbs, graphite and a wild unruliness that seems to come with the site.


Press Note:

Neal Martin: "The 2014 Pondok Rug Cabernet Franc comes from a single vineyard at around 350 meters altitude on a ridge that runs above the winery, the soils mainly dense clay (apparently exposed to both wind and baboons!). This maiden release has a superb bouquet that really expresses the grape variety in the style of the Loire, rather than say Right Bank Bordeaux. The 50% new oak is deftly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, notes of tobacco and black pepper infusing the red and black fruit, a hint of bell pepper surfacing towards the focused and composed finish. This is an excellent debut and a worthy addition to the Keermont portfolio. 92 points" From a block planted on Stellenbosch Mountain in 2006, this is a new wine from Keermont.
