2010 Keermont Fleurfontein - 92 PTS - eRobertParker.com

wa92"A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Chenin Blanc made from grapes dried on the vine, this 2010 Fleurfontein has superb definition on the nose with Sauternes-like honeyed fruits with great purity and definition. The palate has very good acidity and tension to cut through the 126g/l sugar, leading to a mouth-caressing, understated finish with honey, pear, quince and vanilla. Drink now-2016+. Keermont Vineyards is a bright star on the horizon. Owned by Mark and Monica Wraith, the first of their 27-hectares was planted only in 2005, located at 250-400m altitude in the Blaauwklippen Valley in the shadow of Guardian Peak. There is a very artisanal approach here, winemaker Alex Starey overseeing elegant wines that belie their intensity. I tasted the wines both blind and with Alex himself, before he rushed off with his surfboard. Importer: Kysela Pere & Fils, Winchester, VA; tel. (540) 722-9228."
