Case of Keermont Terrasse
Terrasse is our barrel fermented white blend which derives its name from the terraced vineyards leading up the mountains on the estate. We have six different white wine varieties planted on these terraces and every year we make up a unique blend depending on what the year gives us. The base is Chenin blanc with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and drops of Rousanne, Marsanne and Viognier adding complexity, fresh acidity and a slight spicy aromatic lift.
Yellow gold colour, this wine has an explosive bouquet of lime, apple, hazelnut and peach with notes of vanilla spice, crushed oyster shell and butterscotch. The palate is textured and vibrant. A weighted entry comes quickly to life with ripe apricot, peach and pear flavours complimented by richer more spicy savoury fruit. This follows into a lingering sweetsour aftertaste with a light phenolic grip. A thin line of salty acidity gives the wine a succulent finish.
36% Chenin Blanc, 22% Chardonnay, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, 8% Rousanne, 8% Marsanne and 6% Viognier.
