'A wine with strong personality. 2019 oxidative toning delivered with precision & hint of honey. Palate is dense, savoury, yet unheavy & with taut acid backbone. Fantail of flavour for grand finale. 10% new oak. Also in 375 ml, 1.5L & 3L, as Mason sibling.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Former Cape Winemakers' Guild protegé Kiara Scott is the talent behind this stylish Chenin Blanc produced at Englishman Tim Rudd's up-and-coming winery in Paarl. Complex, textured, savoury and very bright, it has subtle kitchen spice top notes, lemon and lime flavours and a long, tangy, satisfying finish. A winery to watch. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'NHB. Powdery, fragrant honeysuckle and jasmine with the sweetness of ripe white peach. Creamy, tingling, richly textured spread all over the palate. Apricots and avocado, matcha powder and tarragon and drippingly ripe white melon. A quiet tap-tap of pepper on the scalpel-fine, drawn-out finish. Elegant and beautifully composed. This is seriously classy, sophisticated-artisan Chenin. Don’t serve too cold – it was much better at around 14 °C (57 °F) than chilled.' – Tamlyn Currin, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20

'The 2019 Chenin Blanc was matured in 500-liter oak barrels, 10% new. It has a very crisp and tensile bouquet featuring subtle scents of yellow plum and honeysuckle, plus a hint of broom in the background. The palate is taut and fresh with superb salinity on the entry. Quite backward at the moment, but the tension and intensity on the finish are very promising. Give it 2–3 years in bottle.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100 (Apr 2021)

Producer information Nestled in the corner of the majestic Du Toitskloof Pass, the Brookdale Estate vineyards are exposed to strong winds that reduce the crop but offer much-needed cooling in Paarl's warm climate. It's the perfect recipe for producing wines of real character. Brookdale extends over 80 hectares with 27 planted to vine and the remainder left to revert to its natural habitat. The historic estate has been lovingly restored by the Rudd family, with the Manor House rebuilt and the vineyards rejuvenated and replanted. Bird and animal life are rich and abundant. Every season brings different moods, different hues and different lives.
