Mason Road Chenin Blanc 2019
By Christian Eedes, 6 March 2020
Former CWG Protégé Kiara Scott was appointed winemaker at Paarl property Brookdale in time for the 2019 harvest (with the acclaimed Duncan Savage continuing to play a consultancy role) and her first effort in the form of Mason Road Chenin Blanc 2019 is impressive.
Fermentation occurred spontaneously in a combination of 85% tank and 15% old oak before maturation lasting some six months. The nose shows pear, white peach and citrus plus a little flinty reduction while the palate is pure, fresh and pithy – a really lovely aperitif wine and great quality relative to the price at R110 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 90/100.
