Keermont Estate

Keermont Estate sits in a natural amphitheatre between the Helderberg and Stellenbosch mountain ranges. It was established in 2003 by the Wraith family, who expanded an existing 8ha of vines (mostly Chenin Blanc) to almost 30ha.

A great deal of credit must go to young winemaker Alex Starey, whose experience gleaned from wineries across the world, from the Maipo Valley to the hills of Côte Rôtie, guides his hand. That experience is complemented by a boundless enthusiasm for great wines throughout the world, be they classics or those from off the beaten track. The Keermont reds – a Syrah (perhaps the closest SA has come to Côte Rôtie) and a Bordeaux blend – provide structure, class and a profound sense of provenance, whilst the Terrasse white (an eclectic blend, the cornerstone of which is the original, old vine Chenin Blanc) shows both elegance and sumptuous depth – two attributes which serve as a good in-a-nutshell definition of this exciting developing estate.
