  • Tasting Note: Fine-tuned South African Syrah, brimming with blackcurrants and plums, fragrant with white pepper, violet and a dusting of spice.
  • Food Matching: This is a versatile wine, that pairs well with red meats, ostrich fillet, venison, Asian food and tomato-based dishes.
  • Vineyard: Kleinood ("something small and precious" in Afrikaans) is the name of the 10 ha of vines owned by the De Villiers family. Farmed sustainably and with upmost care for the ecosystem (including addition of bee hives, insect hotels, habitat corridors) as well as a botanical water recycling plant and solar panels for energy mean Kleinood is now completely off grid. Supporting local communities with building and community projects, the Tamboerskloof (named after the suberb from which the family hail) wines are some of the most ethical in our portfolio. These vines were established 2001, 2bud spurs pruning with 7 Wire Perold System Trellising. Harvested beginning March 2014 and Bottled 1 February 2016.
  • Vinification: Hand picked grapes, sorted three times before going into stainless steel fermenters where a combination of modern technology and old-style winemaking techniques take care of crafting our unique wine. Fermented at 26ºC for 14 days. 19 months in 500L French oak barrels – 16% first fill and the remainder in older barrels.
  • Awards and Press News: Wine Advocate 91 points, John Platter 4 and half stars, Wine Spectator 90 points. Tim Atkin MW 94/100 - This is the best Syrah I’ve had from Kleinood, made in what Gunter Schultz describes as a “bright vintage”. Subtle and elegant, with 4% Mourvèdre for added complexity, it’s youthful and sappy with lots of blackberry sweetness, fine tannins and understated wood. 2019-27.
