Syrah

R135

Per Bottle

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.

THOUGHTS & REFLECTIONS

What customers & critics are saying

seperator thank you

This is a wonderfully made, smart wine. It reminds me of a top-notch ‘vin de table’ in France – it ticks all the boxes, your don’t tire of it, and most importantly, everyone loves it.

BUBBLES HYLAND

WINE JOURNALIST, 2020

Lots of red fruit and black cherry notes with subtle hints of white pepper and spice. Nice grippy tannins and good length on the finish.

TASTING NOTES

Dried violets and kirsch scent ripe plums, black olives and red cherries on the nose. Delicately savoury from a hint of smoked meat on the undertow. Fresh berry fruit on the palate is buoyed by a plummy acidity. Gently structured, the tannins layer in featherweight and fine along the bright red fruit profile. The finish tails in with a light dusting of black pepper spice, well balanced and refreshing.

WINEMAKING

The Syrah was hand-harvested in parcels and transferred into open top fermenters. A small percentage of bunches were fermented without destalking. Natural fermentation followed, with a combination of punch downs and pump overs to extract colour and flavour from the skins. After fermentation, the wine was pressed off the skins and malolactic fermentation was completed in barrels and foudres with a short maceration on the skins to stabilize the colour and give the wine palate length. The wine spent a further 8 months in 500 litre and 300 litre French oak barrels and 2500 litre foudre barrels (40% third fill).
