2017 Keermont Estate Terrasse Stellenbosh - (Bottle - 1/75cl)

In 2003 Mark and Monica Wraith bought 2 adjacent farms which now form Keermont Vineyards.
Their aim is to produce some wines which reflect the small vineyards from where the grapes are picked. Nowadays they use some organic practices.

Terrasse is a barrel fermented white blend which derives its name from the terraced vineyards leading up the mountains on the estate.
This wine is based on Chenin blanc (39%) with Sauvignon Blanc (34%), Chardonnay (13%) and Viognier (14%) grape.
The grapes are hand harvested and vinified separately. The white wine is fermented by indigenous yeast in French oak barrels and spends 12 months maturing on the lees. The bottling is by hand without filtration. Less than 10 000 bottles were produced in 2018.

Producer notes: A polished light-yellow gold colour, this wine has a complex bouquet of prominent citrus and stone fruit with notes of vanilla, freshly green cut apple, Frangipane flowers, and a hint of cut grass and earthiness. The wine has a soft juicy palate. Subtle fruit flavours of peach, lychee and apricot are complimented by hints of sweet spice, vanilla, and a notable richness from the lees contact. There is good weight on the mid-palate and a light texture. A limey acidity holds the wine together into a lingering, succulent finish. Drink 2021-2030.
