Alex Starey’s 2015 Terrasse Chenin-based blend was the top-scoring white blend in WineMag ZA 2017 report – a 95-pointer, no less. The backbone of this blend is Chenin blanc from a 46 year old un-irrigated vineyard called ‘Riverside’. This is complemented by Chenin from two younger vineyards and smaller proportions of Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc and Viognier. It’s probably the most elegant Terrasse we’ve seen from Alex yet – with many-toned floral and stone fruit aromas and a wonderfully textured palate. It offers a level of complexity you’d expect from wines at double the price, and should be enjoyed with that special person in your life. If that special person is you, all the better – twice the pleasure!

Press Note:

WineMag ZA's top scoring Cape White in their 2017 report - 95 points Julia Harding MW (jancisrobinson.com) 17++ points: "Plenty of fruit here – stone fruit and apples, rich but nicely tart. Dry, lightly grippy and very, very long. Has both structure and perfume, and clearly the potential to age. Drink 2017-2025" "The Keermont Terrasse 2015 epitomises the Chenin-driven white blends that have re-energised the South African landscape. The 2015 is particularly fine with floral and stone fruit aromas leading on to a complex, textured palate with a dry and chalky finish. It offers a complexity often only seen at twice this price and demands time in the glass." Wine Cellar ZA
