36% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 6% Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot from a selection of sites between 250 and 400 metres above sea level on the mountainous slopes above the Keermont cellar in the valley between the Keermont and Helderberg mountain ranges. This stunning blend spends nearly two years in oak and two years in bottle prior to release. It will keep for many a year but is looking superb; cranberries, a touch of sandalwood, cherry clafoutis and bruised herbs.


Press Note:

Julia Jarding MW (jancisrobinson.com) 17 points "Classic complex flavours of a Bordeaux blend, plenty of dark fruit, with fruit filling all the corners. Firm, compact but rounded texture. Dry finesse and still very young. Drink 2018-2028" A “cosmic property” "Best of the tasting - Every (Keermont) wine deserves a trophy" - Matthew Jukes 'The fruit for this wine comes from remote, high-sited vineyards on the shoulder of land between Stellenbosch Mountain and the Helderberg. Winemaker Alex Starey crafts impressively complex, detailed wines which age superbly from it – as this 2013 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with lesser quantities of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Syrah, and Petit Verdot proves. It’s sweetly beguiling, but not merely that. There are plant and soil scents as well as something more exotic and incense-like. On the palate the wine is packed with dry currant and plum. It’s open, faintly exotic as the nose was, softly chewy, gently balanced, expressive and articulate - a genuinely gastronomic, quietly beautiful Cape red. Drinking Window 2019 – 2024 94/100' Tasted by Andrew Jefford(at the South African Cape, 27 Feb 2019) Decanter.com
