About this Item

Steepside Syrah, 2014
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Straddled between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, with less than 30 hectares of scattered high-altitude vineyards, Keermont was started by the Wraith family in 2003 and was formed by combining 2 adjacent farms. Relaxed yet quality-focused Alex Starey has been in charge of the wines since redevelopment and planting in 2005, producing the maiden 2007.

 

Critics Ratings

‘The 2014 is the deeper-coloured, more darkly spicy, perhaps more structured and a touch less light-feeling, compared to the Topside Syrah. Very refined; savoury note complements full, ripe fruit. All in balance, but introspective - needs and deserves time. All the reds have no added yeast, fining or filtration.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2017, 4.5*

‘Another brilliant release from this clay loam and granite-based site, this ranks among the five best Syrahs in the Cape. Grippy, spicy and perfumed, it’s a wine with sappy, almost bloody notes, frm yet fine tannins and a core of dark, brooding fruit and acidity. Stunning stuff.’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016, 96/100
