Keermont Amphitheatre 2016

R695.00 inc. VAT
"The 2016 Keermont Amphitheatre, a Bordeaux blend matured in seasoned oak for 20 months, has a pretty, floral bouquet with raspberry, wild strawberry and a very light lavender scent that percolates through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy opening, fine acidity, decent structure and grip with a lightly spiced finish. You could drink this now, but it will age in bottle for a decade or more." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Keermont Syrah 2018

R320.00 inc. VAT
"The "basic" Keermont Syrah uses grapes from the Topside, Steepside and Sweetwater vineyards and is something of a bargain given its quality. Paired with 10% Mourvèdre, this is alluringly perfumed and exotic, with lavender and wild thyme aromas, bramble, pomegranate and black cherry flavours and supple tannins." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont “Pondokrug” Cabernet Franc 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"I love Cabernet Franc", says Alex Starey, and you can see why when he produces wines that are as good as this single vineyard expression from Stellenbosch Mountain. Perfumed, stylish and well crafted, it has the elegance and precision of its cooler site, good underlying structure and classic black cherry, bay leaf and pencil shaving notes." Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Topside Syrah 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"Syrah lovers could spend a long time discussing the relative merits of Alex Starey's single parcel Syrahs. I have a very slight preference for Topside in 2018, partly because its cooler terroir on Stellenbosch Mountain was well suited to the drought conditions of the vintage. Restrained, focused and built to age in bottle, it has sage and oregano perfume, savoury tannins, refreshing acidity and minerality and flavours of plum, raspberry, red cherry and tobacco leaf." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2020

R570.00 inc. VAT
"Sourced from a single, old-vine block close to the river on the Keermont farm, this is a layered, effortlessly complete Chenin Blanc from Alex Starey that displays a lovely medley of nectarine, apple and honey flavours, subtle wood spices and a long, slightly salty finish." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Steepside Syrah 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"It's good to see a top Cape Syrah released with a little bottle age, especially when it’s as good as this one from a warm, north-facing site on clay soils. Complex, dense and voluptuous, it has garrigue and tarragon aromas, understated oak and flavours of cooked meat, tapenade, damson and blackberry. Superb." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont 4 Barrels Rosé 2023

R210.00 inc. VAT
"Pale onion skin pink in colour, this wine has powerful aromas of ripe strawberry, litchi, and cut grass. The palate is soft and textured with vibrant acidity. Beautiful berry and stone fruit flavours are complimented by vanilla undertones. Drink now, or within the next 5 years. " - Winemaker's notes

Keermont Terrasse 2022

R280.00 inc. VAT
"The Terrasse 2022 has an inviting aroma with notes of spring flowers, ripe apricots and citrus, and a hint of fennel. The palate is soft and luscious, with lovely fresh acidity and an array of flavours: ripe apricot, peach and quince flavours complimented by richer more spicy savoury fruit. This follows into a lingering aftertaste with salty acidity." - Winemaker's notes

Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum 2020

R920.00 inc. VAT
"Something of a crowd pleaser from Alex Starey, this is a comparatively forward cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Supple, ripe and perfumed, it combines fynbos and dried herb aromas, fig and mulberry flavours, supple tannins and plenty of body and alcohol." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Merlot 2020

R295.00 inc. VAT
"Reflecting the heat spikes of the 2020 vintage, this is the fuller bodied of the two current Merlot releases from Keermont. Sweet, ripe and concentrated, it has notes of mulberry and raspberry jam, textured, supple tannins and deftly integrated older oak." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

R379.99 inc. VAT
"Something of a crowd pleaser from Alex Starey, this is a comparatively forward cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Supple, ripe and perfumed, it combines fynbos and dried herb aromas, fig and mulberry flavours, supple tannins and plenty of body and alcohol." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Fleurfontein 2021

R330.00 inc. VAT
"Consistently among the Cape's sweet wine elite, this is an unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc and 24% Roussanne. Naturally fermented in French and Hungarian oak, it has layers of passion fruit, pineapple and mango, intense 225 grams of residual sugar and a tangy, tartetatin finish. The volatile acidity is commendably low for the style." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Syrah 2017

R320.00 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Syrah Keermont is a blend of three vineyards, which is blended with 4% Mouvedre and matured in seasoned barrels for 20 months. It has an attractive bouquet with briary, wilted rose petals and strawberry pastilles that opens with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture, fine acidity; the 2017 is harmonious with a relatively light but focused finish. Perfect to drink now, but it will also give 12-15 years of drinking pleasure." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Keermont “Riverside” Magnum 2018

R1,380.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Chenin Blanc Single Vineyard Series Riverside has a taut bouquet, quite neutral in style; hints of fish scales emerge with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, brisk and breezy, not overly complex but precise on the finish, which reveals subtle yeasty scents. Very fine." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Keermont Pondokrug Cabernet Franc 2017

R590.00 inc. VAT
"Pondokrug sits on the cooler side of the valley and is located on water-retaining clay soils, this is a site that's “hammered by the wind and the baboons", according to Alex Starey. Fermented with 10% whole bunches, this is textured, floral and refined, with lovely oregano and dill aromas, granular tannins and racy black fruit." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Topside Syrah 2017

R590.00 inc. VAT
Keermont Single Vineyard Series Topside Syrah 2017, "Topside is all made with the 470 clone and hails from a single vineyard with a westerly aspect that sees very little sunshine in the mornings. Denser and firmer than its stablemate Steepside, this a dark, inky, brooding Syrah with fig, damson and Asian spice flavours and lots of stony grip." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Steepside Syrah 2017

R582.00 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Syrah Single Vineyard Series Steepside is matured for 20 months in seasoned oak. There is a slight reduction on the nose with dark berry fruit and light violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, well balanced and definitely a more elegant and understated Syrah with long and tender finish. Lovely." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2019

R458.00 inc. VAT
Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2019 "Sourced from clay and alluvial soils close to the winery on the Upper Blauuwklippen Road, this is an engagingly focused, layered, refreshing Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc from Alex Starey, showing lots of stony minerality, pear and green apple flavours and slightly salty undertone." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Steepside Syrah Magnum 2017

R1,456.00 inc. VAT
"Steepside faces north and east and is situated at 300 metres on granite and clay loam soils. The result in 2017, that exceptional Cape vintage, is a world-class Syrah from Alex Starey, with a combination of violet and pine aromas, fine-boned tannins, subtle oak and bramble and black cherry fruit. Vibrant and energetic" - Tim Atkin MW
