A top scorer in a recent Decanter tasting of 220+ SA Chenins. From the oldest vineyard on the farm planted in 1971, it is beginning to drink beautifully with hints of tangerine and light oak tannins adding texture, apple and melon and quince skin, almost a violet note too, and amazing length. Drink now-2030.
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. And oh boy do they do it with aplomb.
FROM THE PRESS
“Perfumed and peachy with a lifted top note, bathroom soap, sun lotion and an apple-melon mélange on the palate. ”Greg Sherwood MW
“Fresh, bright, juicy-fruited wine, with lovely balance and fine texture, light oak tannins and gentle fruit. Understated and restrained, this wine is ageing beautifully.”Beverley Blanning MW
