Tasting Notes

A highlight on our most recent trip to the Cape, a truly stunning Syrah with a powerful sweet, herbal, smokey nose. The palate is plush and exuberant, bursting with cherry liqueur, vanilla pod, wood polish and more herbs. Lovely thing!


Press Note:

Neal Martin" The 2014 Keermont Syrah is blended with 4% Mourvedre and matured for 20 months in barrel with two rackings. It offers quite a bold bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, wild hedgerow and raspberry preserve scents. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe red berries, sage and white pepper, just a hint of garrigue (wild fennel and white pepper) towards the finish. There is a impressive detail in this Syrah, perhaps a little more body than the 2013 (a cooler vintage), and it should offer 10-12 years of pleasure. 90 points" Julia Harding MW (jancisrobinson.com) 17 points: "Dry and peppery but finishes on a note of dark chocolate – dry textured like 75% chocolate. I like the severity here, though it has plenty of dark northern-Rhône Syrah character. A certain austerity or refinement, depending on your taste. Drink 2017-2024" "Alex is partial to whole-bunch fermentation and his non-interventionist approach with Syrah brings Rhône-like finesse and savoury tones to balance the trademark fruit purity of Stellenbosch. The knock-out Keermont Syrah 2014 is produced from 3 different Helderberg vineyards. Each brings a different aspect to the blend making this a multi-layered Syrah; a rare find at this price point."
