A chance introduction brought me into contact with Chris Keet and, from the very first sip of his First Verse 2012, I was enthralled. Chris has found tremendous elegance and subtlety with this wine. Very well balanced but with concentration and depth to keep you going back for more, this is a wine that promises a great deal over the next 10+ years.
This five variety Bordeaux blend comes from a range of sites in Stellenbosch. It's a polished, discreet red that's very harmonious, showing the elegance of a cooler vintage. Fresh and leafy. Drink: 2016-22
