Keermont Vineyards is blessed with some very special vineyard sites. Star winemaker Alex Starey knows this farm backwards, having been there since January 2005. The farm is situated high up in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley, otherwise known as Paradyskloof. The Blaauwklippen River, which bisects the farm, is also the boundary between the Helderberg and the Stellenbosch Mountain Range. This means that some of the vineyards are on the warmer north-facing Helderberg slopes and others on the cooler west-facing Stellenbosch range. Due to the steepness of the terrain, the altitude climbs 200m within the 1.7km length of the farm and the vineyards are planted between 250m and 400m above sea level. Thus the vines planted over these different terrains ultimately produce wines with good complexity and a variety of flavours.
