'Rich, fresh, and expressive, with a very perfumed nose of lavender and lilac. The fruits are dark and saline and the palate texture broad and suave.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 96/100 (Gold)

'In fine year, 2017 doesn’t disappoint. Shows vintage ripeness of fruit & tannin, layered with scrub & tobacco spice. Intense, tarry core of black cherries extends to lingering finish. Dashes mourvèdre, viognier. Magnums available.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Sweet blackberry and dark chocolate with firm tannins, high acid and fruit-cake complexity. Firmly structured and chewy, with age required to soften the astringency. Ambitious, needs time.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16+/20

'This wine can be described as a quintessential classic Syrah, with a twist. Featuring a medium intensity nose, starting with violet flowers and cinnamon spice and evolving into freshly crushed black pepper and red cherry, it’s clean complexity and subtle intricacies make for a delightful drinking experience. Still youthful, it also shows smooth chocolate notes proving great potential for evolution in ageing. The palate is refreshing with a fine grained tannin adding weight to the mid-pallet – a juicy, yet elegant wine with good concentration.' – Winemaker

Producer information The small farm of Kleinood was purchased in 2000 by Gerard de Villiers and wife Libby. It started out as a run down and neglected fruit farm but has come a long way since then. The 12-hectare property is planted with 10-hectares of vines, and the remaining 2 hectares with olive trees. The wines produced are called Tamboerskloof, named after the Cape Town suburb where the de Villiers grew up and first dreamt of the farm they would own one day. In addition to wine, Kleinood also produces olive oil, honey and parfum.
