About this Item

Topside 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

‘Last made in 2012, as with Steepside. 2014 has the lighter colour of the two, brighter herbal and lily notes. Also fresh and light-feeling on palate, with enlivening acidity, engaging tannins and succulent subtly sweet fruit. Most of these wines were aged in only older oak barrels.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2017, 5*

‘Topside is located on sandstone soils on the Stellenbosch Mountain. “Always a charmer”, as winemaker Alex Starey puts it, this is clove and white pepper scented, focused and well balanced. A bit of whole bunch fermentation adds another dimension to the sweet violet, raspberry and bramble favours. Drink: 2017-23.’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016, 95/100
