Tamboerskloof, Syrah 750ml 2016South Africa, Stellenbosch
'Matured for 18 months in 300- and 500-litre French oak barrels, 15% new. Very primary on the nose with a touch of reduction before red berries, herbs and white pepper. The palate is clean and fresh with pure, concentrated fruit and crunchy tannins, the finish long and dry.' – WineMag Shiraz Report 2019, 94/100
'Blended with a little Mourvèdre and Viognier, this is a wonderfully elegant, fragrant Syrah, which is all the more praiseworthy in a tricky vintage. Bright, pure and focused, with understated wood, some cinnamon spice, layered tannins and plenty of perfume. Drink 2020-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100
'Elegantly wrought 2016 has spicy damson & maraschino cherry fruit core cosseted in sleek tannins. Complex, layered aromas mingle with meaty, savoury notes, all in serene harmony. Splashes mourvèdre & viognier; 18 months in oak, 15% new. Also in magnums.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)
Alc: 14.5% | RS: 1.9 g/L | TA: 6.1 g/L | PH: 3.37
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.
