About this Wine

You’ve heard of the Miracle on 34th Street but what about the Miracle of Paradyskloof? That Keermont winemaker Alex Starey managed to produce a Terrasse White from the notoriously drought-plagued 2016 vintage and score 93 points from two top critics surely has to count as some kind of supernatural occurrence. This old-vine chenin-based blend is a nailed-on deliverer of joy.

Tasting notes

'The Keermont Terrasse white blend derives its name from the terraced vineyards on Keermont. The backbone of this blend is Chenin Blanc from a 48 year old un-irrigated vineyard called ‘Riverside’ and this is complimented by Chenin from two younger vineyards and varying fractions of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.' Alex Starey, Winemaker

FROM THE PRESS

“The 2016 Keermont Terrasse underwent a little skin contact and was barrel-fermented in 225- and 500-liter barrels with around 10% new oak for 12 months. It has a fresh bouquet of white peach, honeysuckle and a touch of melted candle wax. The palate is well balanced, considering that Alex Starey said it was the first vintage that endured drought problems (hence the higher percentage of Sauvignon Blanc), offering grass clipping, gooseberry and nettle toward the finish. Very fine.”
