Tasting Note

A real jewel in the crown of our South African listings. This is very serious Syrah, almost Côte-Rôtie in style. The black fruit character is added to by aromas of black olive and smoked meat. With a long finish and good balance of freshness this is as fine a Syrah as we’ve found in South Africa. Superb. (Will)

Awards & Accolades

92 Parker points!

"Relative newcomer Alex Starey (first official vintage was in 2007) has made a cracking Cornas-style Syrah. Big black fruit, dried flowers, meaty and smoky. It’s a big wine but has great balance and focus. I’d buy some any day of the week." Peter Dean, The Buyer

The Producer

Keermont Estate

Alex Starey is in charge of the vineyards and of making the estate’s wines. Employed at the start of the redevelopment of the farm in 2005. Alex’s philosophy in the vineyards tends towards the natural rather than the scientific. The aim to create wines that reflect the beautiful place from which they come and the particular year’s vintage conditions. For this reason, they try to use less chemical fertilizers, fewer pesticides and to irrigate as little as possible. In the winery Alex’s aim is to guide the wines through fermentation and maturation as gently and naturally as possible so he can capture the true essence of the fruit that they put so much effort into growing.
