Agriculture in the Upper Blaauwklippen Valley can be traced back to 1694. In 2003, the Wraith family moved to the Western Cape from Gauteng and bought two adjacent farms. These two farms are now farmed as one Estate known as Keermont Vineyards.

Keermont “Pondokrug” Cabernet Franc 2016

R425.01 inc. VAT
"One of the younger wines in the Keermont portfolio - it was first made as recently as 2014 - this is at the firmer end of the Cabernet Franc spectrum, which is why Alex Starey says it needs "a week in a decanter to open up properly". Floral, dense and focused, it has stylish oak, layers of cut grass and damson fruit and a fresh finish. 2022-28" - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2020

Keermont “Riverside” Chenin Blanc 2018

R425.01 inc. VAT
"This world-class Syrah hails from a 0.7-hectare parcel planted on a ridge in 2005. Made with no stems in 2016 – the wine normally sees 15% whole bunches - it's like a Cape Côte Rôtie, all perfume, nuance and texture, with notes of ginger spice, barbecued meat and some ferrous grip. 2021-28" - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2020

Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

R280.00 inc. VAT
"2017 was an excellent growing season on Keermont. Despite a drier than usual winter, we had strong growth in the vineyards during the spring time. This led to the formation of a good healthy crop which ripened evenly during the warm, dry summer. Harvest started fairly early, but was put on hold after a heavy rainfall in late January. This rejuvenated the vines and allowed for extended ripening which definitely raised the general quality. We recorded one of our largest and healthiest crops yet and grapes came in with great analysis and concentration." Winemaker's notes.

Keermont Estate Reserve 2014

R340.00 inc. VAT
"The 2014 Estate Reserve is a blend of 37% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot and 2% Syrah. It has an intense bouquet of black cherries, boysenberry, pressed iris petals and a touch of iodine, all very focused and seeming to just close up a little with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins framing crisp blackberry and bilberry fruit laced with licorice and sea salt. It feels very composed on the finish, yet I suspect that it might close up for a couple of years. Have a cellar handy." - Neal Martin, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Keermont Fleurfontein 2018

"Produced with cordon cut grapes that are dried on the vine, this barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc sweet wine is rich and exotic, boasting 230 grams and an elevated level of volatile acidity. Passion fruit and honeycomb combine on the palate to enticing effect." - Tim Atkin, South African Special Report 2018

Keermont Fleurfontein 2019

Yellow gold in colour with copper tinge, the Fleurfontein 2019 exudes aromas of dried apricot, lime marmalade, and ripe orange rind with hints of hazelnut and vanilla. The palate is full and creamy with concentrated flavours of dried fruits and marzipan with a grassy freshness. A central core of acidity gives the wine a long, complex, and succulent finish with a slightly salty touch. Drink now through to 2031.

Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2017

R425.01 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Riverside Chenin Blanc comes from the oldest block on the farm, planted in 1972. It was fermented in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels and then spent a further 12 months maturing on the lees. It has a fragrant bouquet of yellow flowers, honeysuckle, Cornice pear and light stony aromas. The palate is well balanced with satisfying weight on the entry. I appreciate the waxy texture here and the pithiness toward the finish; hints of sour lemon, sherbet and light ginger/rhubarb appear on the aftertaste. Enjoy this Chenin over the next decade." - Neal Martin, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Keermont Syrah 2015

R264.99 inc. VAT
"The 2015 Keermont Syrah, containing 13% Mourvèdre, is softly floral with a dark-fruited edge and subtle black pepper spices. The medium-bodied palate is clean with a firm blackberry core that turns tart and grippy as it lingers in the mouth, finishing long and structured with tannic grip." - Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Keermont Terrasse 2018

R200.00 inc. VAT
"A polished light-yellow gold colour, this wine has a complex bouquet of prominent citrus and stone fruit with notes of vanilla, freshly green cut apple, Frangipane flowers, and a hint of cut grass and earthiness. The wine has a soft juicy palate. Subtle fruit flavours of peach, litchi and apricot are complimented by hints of sweet spice, vanilla, and a notable richness from the lees contact. There is good weight on the mid-palate and a light texture. A limey acidity holds the wine together into a lingering, succulent finish."Winemaker's note
