About the Wine

The Keermont Estate Reserve is the flagship red blend. Most of the vineyard parcels grow on deep red clay rich soil derived from sandstone and granite and are surrounded by indigenous vegetation. Small batches of grapes are specifically selected according to ripeness, harvested by hand and vinified separately. This process is carried out gently and naturally in open top fermenters using traditional methods only. This wine spent 22 months maturing in French oak barrels (20% new) before being bottled by hand without filtration. 8802 bottles and 50 magnums were produced. The Keermont Estate Reserve is bottle aged in our cellar for 12 to 24 months before release.

   

Venetian red in colour, this wine exudes complex aromas of sandalwood, ripe cherry, wild berries, and dusty 'fynbos'. On the palate, the wine has a soft entry and exudes an array of ripe berries, cherry sherbet, crushed herbs and spices. Elegant but firm tannin affords the wine a long dry succulent finish.
