2016 Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon - 95 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 7% Malbec and 6% Cabernet Franc and spent 22 months in seasoned French oak. It has a classy bouquet of expressive red berry fruit, cedar and light undergrowth aromas that leans toward the Left Bank. The palate is medium-bodied with great sapidity right from the start. The tannins are extremely fine here, and the finish fans out gloriously with just enough bite to tempt you back for another sip. This is an outstanding Cabernet from winemaker Alex Starey. - Neal Martin"

2016 Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon - 89 PTS - WA

wa"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 7% Malbec and 6% Cabernet Franc. On the nose, the wine has classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas with hints of delicately spiced herbs, black and red fruits and a soft mineral edge. The medium-bodied palate is clean with an elegant core of rich red and black fruits with a subtle spice note and a decently lingering, pencil shaving-laced finish. 8,133 bottles were made. - Anthony Mueller"

2015 Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon - 90+ PTS - WA

wa"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is open on the nose with a dusty blackberry and soft, ripe yet rustic core, having been blended with 12% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc. The full-bodied palate is structured and focused and it shows the vintage character well, with a broad, bold focus of black fruits, a rustic rigidity typical of Stellenbosch and elegant, soft garden herbs notes. The finish is structured and long. 4,773 bottles were made, bottled unfiltered and fermented using indigenous yeast. - Anthony Mueller"

2015 Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon - 91 PTS - IWR

i winereview logo"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."

2015 Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2015 Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Cottage Lane Vineyard, located at 300 meters above sea level. It was picked in small batches that underwent strict sorting and spent two to three weeks on the skins. It then matured for 22 months in 225-liter French oak barrels (10% to 15% new) before being bottled by hand without filtration. It has a tightly wound bouquet at first, presenting blackberry, bilberry, cedar and light damp undergrowth scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and mint- and cedar-tinged black fruit on the entry, building toward a nicely structured, quite sappy finish. It doesn’t quite deliver the panache of its Syrah counterpart, but it is a fine Cabernet Sauvignon all the same. - Neal Martin"

2014 Keermont Cabernet Sauvignon - 93 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"This is the first vintage of this varietal Cabernet, grown on red clay loam soils at 300 metres. The vines are still quite young, but it’s a superb début, with subdued oak, savoury, perfumed top notes, fine-grained tannins and pure cassis and wild herb flavours. One to watch. 2019-25."
