2015 Keermont Steepside Syrah, Stellenbosch

Powerful, deep and intense, the 2015 Steepside is a pure, yet brooding wine that has so much potential. There’s ripe tannins and intense fruit, with so much purity on the finish. Very finely judged, with amazing depth and minerality that lasts for minutes. Brilliant.

TASTING NOTES

If Topside is Alex Starey’s Côte Rôtie, then Steepside is his Cornas, a hotter, north-facing site that produces dense, ferrous, almost bloody Syrah. This is grippy and firm with layers of tannin and firm, intense dark berry fruit.
