Blackberry crumble, cinnamon, glace cherries, cocoa and orange oil. Lovely nuance of gin-like botanicals - coriander seeds, juniper, angelica and cinnamon-like cassia bark and fynbos. Really, incredibly good, with more plush liquor fruit and berry compote on the palate. Tannins are chalky, and magnificently structured. 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, 16% Malbec & 8% Petit Verdot, aged for 20 months in barrel and 5 years in bottle before release. Drink now and for many years to come.
Keermont Estate may well take the prize for most beautiful vineyards and views in all of South Africa. And yup, there's some pretty stiff competition! Nestled in a natural amphitheatre between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, their ambition is to produce wines that reflect the natural wonders of this exquisite place.
