Keermont is one of our South African producers and the first to show us that world class wine is produced in this country. As far as I am concerned, they produce some of the best South African wines I have tasted over the past 9 years of working in the country.
Keermont differs from other producers in the region in an interesting way. The wines are refined and polished, but you can detect a hint of a rustic touch. This is something I enjoy, I want my big reds to taste like big reds and that is exactly what they have done here.
We just received the Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon 2015. The grapes for this second release Cabernet are sourced from low yield vines and it shows in the bottled product through the weight on the palate along with complex fruit flavors.
Keermont has shown us what South Africa is capable of when it comes to Cabernet Sauvignon. Reviews and link below or reply to this email to order.
"Medium dark red. Finely perfumed of red and black currants with hints of dried spices. Silky mouth feel with impressive intensity of balanced fruit, cedar hints and lively acidity. More finesse than power in this elegantly styled wine. Sourced from a single, exposed parcel on top of the ridge with low yields. 14.5% alc.""Keermont isn't always associated with Cabernet Sauvignon - it's seen as Syrah Central - but this single vineyard bottling is consistently impressive. Elegant, sinewy and focused, it has filigree tannins and a nice floral lift underpinned by fine tannins. 2019-25"

"Bright and spicy up top, this leads with notes of kirsch and crème de cassis that are complemented by sweet spice, dried purple florals and raspberry leaf. The palate is smooth and sanity at first, with rich fruit tones leading the experience, while firm yet fine tannins enter on the midpalate and carry through with moderate intensity through the earthy, sweet-spiced finish - Lauren BUZZEO"
