Kiara Scott is not one to shy away from a challenge, and with the backing of proprietor Tim Rudd, she has the freedom to explore the boundaries of possibility at Brookdale Estate in Paarl. The Mason Road Syrah is no exception to this rule, and many were, shall we say, ‘nervous’ at the prospect of a Syrah from young vines being released in the same year as its harvest. But upon the first waft of the nose, all concerns were dispelled.
Like the rest of Mason Road range from Brookdale, the Syrah truly pushes the boundaries of convention, as well as the quality-to-price ratio. This Syrah seduces the senses and tempts the palate from the moment it enters your space. The nose offers an alluring perfume that draws you into the glass. Old-world charm holds your attention on the palate where sultry tannins, spicy earth elements, impressive length and bright acidity await.
The epitome of old-world elegance meets new world bravery.
