Tasting Notes

Sourced from three different vineyards, and with 13% Mourvedre added to the blend, the 2016 Syrah is spicy, loaded with dried currants, cherries, clove-studded orange and prettier floral notes - bruised lavender in particular. Quite bold and full-bodied, like all Keermont wines, it's exquisitely balanced, with a deep palate with notes of intense blackcurrant and sweet, earthy notes, almost like sugar beet. It finishes long and savoury, with a fine sprinkling of pepper.

More Info

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.

FROM THE PRESS

“The 2016 Syrah has a mellow, warm, inviting bouquet of red cherries, crushed strawberry, star anise and orange liqueur scents. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, quite fleshy and satin-like in texture, though it decides not to exert too much grip on the finish. This is drinking perfectly now and should continue to do so for the next 10–12 years. Drink 2022-2032”
Neal Martin, Vinous
