Tasting Note

Ruby in colour, Tamboerskloof Syrah has a complex nose of garrigue (the combined fynbos aromas of rosemary, lemon verbena, lavender and marjoram that perfume the air at Kleinood), ripe cherry, fine spices, cassis, currant and ripe strawberry. The well-balanced palate shows dark plum, Christmas cake, Turkish delight and a fine hint of cinnamon. It finishes with soft, elegant tannins.

Press

  • In 2015 it has eclipsed the amazing 2014 which I, personally, didn’t think possible. While the ’14 was controlled, calm, classy and complex the 2015 vintage, which includes 5% Mourvèdre and 1% Viognier in its makeup, is more densely packed and profound. Only two-thirds of the normal crop was harvested in this vintage and while the cellar might not be as full as usual, the bottles are certainly stuffed with even more flavour than ever. Fifteen percent new oak is used here and so the dramatic, mountainside fruit is allowed to express itself fully in this commanding, spicy, aromatically enchanting wine.

  • Tremendous power coursing through compact, black-cherry fruit and glossy Moroccan-leather tannins. Very spicy, rich and concentrated but great balance of freshness. Mouth-watering finish. The fruit gleams like black-crimson jewels.

  • The 2015 Tamboerskloof Syrah was blended with 1% Viognier and 5% Grenache, handpicked and completely destemmed, left for a week on the skins with malolactic in barrel, and raised in about 15% new oak (300- and 500-liter barrels). It has a powerful, slightly gamy blackberry, boysenberry and clove bouquet that delivers plenty of fruit; hints of black olive tapenade develop with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and quite rounded in texture, with touches of white pepper and clove, although I would like a little more depth and substance toward the finish. This is a delight. Drink 2019-2028.
