Keet Wines First Verse 2009







We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone… and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something”. Sandra Day O’Connor

I am delighted to share the launch of my maiden vintage, First Verse 2009 with you – a blend of 32% Cabernet Franc, 26% Merlot , 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec and 10% Petit Verdot. First Verse offers a fine rhythm of flavours, a harmonious synergy of elements and well-balanced tannins – Earth’s Poetry in a bottle.

This wine has been awarded four and a half stars in the 2012 Platter’s Wine Guide. According to Platter, “this cabernet franc-led, 5-way Bordeaux red is like an expensive Swiss watch: classy, elegant & perfect, all the little details present & polished, harmonious…”.

I firmly believe that the art of winemaking is based on relationships, passion, integrity and authenticity. First Verse encompasses this philosophy.

Tim Atkin (MW) rated this wine 95 / 100 and in his South African report of 2017 described this wine as “Elegance and perfume in a glass. Savoury spice and floral aromas, berry fruit, tangy acidity and very subtle wooding: this is the work of a brilliant winemaker and blender.”


Enjoy the release of this 2013 First Verse blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot, 8% Malbec and 7% Petit Verdot.
