Mason Road Serendipity Rosé

SYRAH • GRENACHE NOIR • CINSAULT

Part of Brookdale’s Mason Road wine range, Serendipity is exactly that – a moment where chance an opportunity came together. You see, this salmon-coloured rosé with aromas of cherries, strawberries and passion fruit was never meant to happen…

A single block of Grenache Noir had been planted to create a notable red wine blend. However, on the day of the harvest, Tim and Kiara were tasting the grapes and they decided to rather use the entire block for a serious and elegant rosé blend. Now, rosé had never been discussed before as a wine for Brookdale and a flurry of quick thinking and action ensued to make it a reality. It was a complete leap of faith and the result is a summery, medium-bodied rosé as unexpected as it is marvellous. Proof that exploration of the unknown can result in something truly remarkable.

Serendipity is a testament to the curious, and to elegant South African rosé wines.

What customers & critics are saying

Shades of Provençal rosé, utilising the same varietals, with Duncan Savage’s tell-tale precision.

I like to call this a ‘converter’ wine. It’s impossible not to like and even rosé critics enjoy a glass (or two).

TASTING NOTES

A Provence-style rosé with a pale salmon pink colour. The elegant nose offers raspberry, watermelon, and citrus peel and the well-balanced palate has good fruit concentration featuring watermelon, strawberry, and grapefruit, with subtle floral notes. The wine is well structured with a pronounced presence, medium acidity and lingering aftertaste.

WINEMAKING

Bunches were selected in the vineyard during harvest before the grapes were whole bunch pressed and settled overnight. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its natural freshness. Mason Road Serendipity is an elegant wine, partially matured in old oak barrels for a few months for added complexity and body. After primary fermentation, the various components were blended thoughtfully and bottled for you to enjoy.
