Syrah 2017, Keermont, Stellenbosch
The 2016 Syrah is spicy, loaded with dried currants, cherries, clove-studded orange and prettier floral notes – bruised lavender in particular. Quite bold and full-bodied, like all Keermont wines, it’s exquisitely balanced, with a deep palate with notes of intense blackcurrant and sweet, earthy notes, almost like sugar beet. It finishes long and savoury, with a fine sprinkling of pepper.
Keermont Estate may well take the prize for most beautiful vineyards and views in all of South Africa. And yup, there’s some pretty stiff competition! Nestled in a natural amphitheatre between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, their ambition is to produce wines that reflect the natural wonders of this exquisite place. And oh boy do they do it with aplomb.
