Serious body, nice finish, firm. 2015 vintage. — 3 years ago
Drank at 41st and riverside park with dinner picnic sandwiches. Light fruit (lemon, pear, orange). Slight floral. Mild honey on the finish. Very light mouthfeel which is surprising considering all the flavors and pleasant considering the warm day. Medium-length finish. It may be a little past its prime, but very good. — 3 years ago

The Terrasse is a white blend that gets its name from Keermont’s terraced vineyards. It is a blend of Chenin Blanc from a 46 year old un-irrigated vineyard called 'Riverside' and is complimented by Chenin from two younger vineyards and varying fractions of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.
The nose is a little shy. Cut grass, understated; lemon, lime, pineapple, green melon and white peach. Soft chalkiness & minerality, light saline, white & yellow flowers.
The body is light and lively. Understated; lemon, lime, pineapple, green melon, white peach, honeysuckle a little cut grass, soft chalkiness & minerality, light saline, white & yellow flowers. Beautiful acidity and elegant, ripe, well balanced finish that persists softly in the mouth.
We also tasted his 2013 Cabernet Reserve & his 2016 Fluerfonein (sticky Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc wine) but, I didn’t have time to write notes as we had to get to another appointment. 🤷♂️ Both good and worth seeking out.

We started our afternoon with Owner-Winemaker, Alex Starey touring his vineyard.
Afterwards, we began with his Reserve Chenin which, is produced from 48 year old vines.
The nose reveals; soft wet wool, underripe green melon, green apple with no skin, white peach, gooseberries, pineapple, lime, lemon, light herbaceous notes, very understated minerality & soft chalkiness, white spring flowers. The acidity is excellent. The ripe, lightly polish, elegant finish is right in my wheel house.
