"This cuvée has a residual sugar of 130 g/l, with an acidity of 4.5 g/l, and it was bottled just one month before tasting. Youthful purity on the nose, an aromatic profile which suggests finesse, with notes of white peach, freshly crushed pear and crisp white apple flesh. The palate carries a delicious intensity, showing the same pure and finessed style, as well as wonderful complexities redolent of vanilla, wild red fruits, mango and peach too. This is delicious. A pretty amazing wine with astonishing potential." -Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor
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
"This is the generic domaine cuvée from Romain Guiberteau, vinified entirely in stainless steel. At the time of tasting it was still resting in cuve, with bottling scheduled for the following week. The aromatics are enticing, with an divinely salty, powdery, minerally style. This is countered by a palate which is supple, polished and weighty, yet maintains a light-footed elegance as it dances into the midpalate. I adore the rich density of orchard fruits cut by the saline minerals and bright acidity, through to the finish. This is top notch, and it has lovely potential. - Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor."
