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. A select portion of a single vineyard block farmed sustainably are producing superior Syrah grapes every time. The Tamboerskloof John Spicer Syrah is made from this portion of a single vineyard block on Kleinood.
An enticing, juicy mass of ripe plum, Maraschino cherries and blackcurrants, all perfumed with cinnamon, cedar and herbs.
