2011 Keermont White Blend Terrasse - 90 PTS - IWC

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 90 Pts"Bright gold-tinged yellow. Sexy, high-toned aromas of orange blossom, honey, spices, toast and lees; I get a hint of noble rot. Then rich, spicy and generous on the palate, with peach and spice flavors conveying a strong impression of dusty extract. This distinctly dry, substantial wine shows good energy and incipient complexity, closing with a honeyed aftertaste."

2011 Keermont White Blend Terrasse - 93 PTS -

wa93"The 2011 White Blend Terrasse is 60% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay and for the first time, 15% Sauvignon Blanc from an old block on the farm with a little barrel ferment, plus 5% Viognier. As usual it is raised in used barrels. It displays wonderful precision on the nose with subtle notes of pink grapefruit, dew-speckled pear, peach and a touch of lanolin. It has great clarity on the entry, the oak well defined with great weight and a smooth harmonious orange zest and dried apricot tinged finish. This is one classy Stellenbosch white to cherish. Drink now-2018. Keermont was one of the most impressive Stellenbosch wines that I encountered during my trip last year – once I could entice winemaker Alex Starey away from his surfboard. Fortunately, when not riding waves he continues to find time making his superb wines." (Neal Martin, Issue# 204, December 2012), 93 pts

2012 Keermont White Blend Terrasse - 90 PTS -

wa90"The 2012 Terrasse is a blend of 31% Chenin Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, 30% Sauvignon Blanc and 9% Viognier that sees 12 months in 225-liter and 500-liter barrels. It has a pleasant bouquet with yellow plum, apricot and lemon curd scents that harken toward the southern Rhone. The palate is well-balanced with a vibrant entry, effervescent orange peel and tangerine notes and a soft creamy finish. This is very harmonious and attests to very astute blending of varieties in the cellar. The bottom line is – delicious. Drink now-2017. - NM" (Issue# 209, October 2013), 90 pts

2014 Keermont White Blend Terrasse - 90 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250

"This blend is based on chenin blanc (65 percent, the majority of it planted in 1971) with sauvignon, chardonnay and viognier adding dimension. It’s solidly built, most of it fermented and aged in older oak, but the wine is not overtly phenolic, with clean pear-like flavor on the surface and a gravelly tension underneath. Notes of beeswax bring it back to chenin, the flavors lingering and tightly focused. Pour it with a lemony roast chicken."
