Keermont Syrah is a blend of three different Syrah vineyard sites growing on Keermont Vineyards: Steepside Syrah: Growing on a North facing slope in deep, red clay-rich soils; this vineyard generally produces powerful full bodied wines with rich, spicy flavours. Topside Syrah: An unirrigated west facing vineyard planted at 400m above sea level on rocky sandstone-based soil. Topside Syrah is usually a more aromatic wine with good structure and natural acid. Sweetwater Syrah: Situated in a rocky valley below the Fleurfontein spring, this is the coolest of the three Syrah sites and ripens the latest. Sweetwater Syrah is normally lighter and elegant in style with a herbal aroma.

Tasting notes:
'There’s always a bit of Mourvèdre in Alex Starey’s blended Syrah (13% in 2015) made with grapes from his three single vineyards. Aromatic and pepper spicy, with lovely focus and stony minerality underpinned by fine tannins. 2019-25 – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2018, 93/100

'Includes 13% Mourvèdre. Approximately 10% whole-bunch fermented. Matured for 20 months in older oak. Expressive aromatics of black berries, lavender, fynbos, pepper and spice. The palate is full-bodied and flavourful – quite a hearty wine, the tannins already starting to resolve.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

About Keermont:
Keermont must be SA’s most under-the-radar winery. Besides the wines being excellent and produced in minute quantities, we are astounded by the value they offer. Alongside Kanonkop, Delaire and Reyneke, Keermont is the only other Stellenbosch property to be counted among Tim Atkin’s 15 First Growths. Already recognised as a producer of benchmark Syrah, the estate is tucked away in the Upper Blaauwklippen Valley – an area of Syrah fame spanning Kleinood, Waterford and De Trafford. 'If you want to see the new South Africa and catch a glimpse of what the future beholds, then look no further than Keermont,’ says Neal Martin.
