Awards/Reviews

5 Stars 2022 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Clarity & precision define 18 ***** (95 pts), from best blocks sauvignon & semillon (63/37). Vibrant lime zest countered by broad creaminess of barrel ferment (32% new) & 9 months lees contact. Complex, structured, but vivacious & fresh. A good future, like 17 (94 pts).

Winemaker Notes

This is a blend of 63% Sauvignon blanc and 37% Semillon. It was made from grapes grown on the highest slopes of Tokara’s Stellenbosch property, which lies in the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountain Range.

This wine displays a pale straw colour with striking brilliance which catches the light. The nose is complex, exhibiting attractive notes of gooseberry and pink grapefruit all intermingled with hints of lemon grass and lightly toasted almonds. There is an underlying flintiness and graphitic note that affirms the contribution from the Semillon. On the palate the wine enters full and rich reminiscent of the aromas on the nose. The wine has amazing clarity and depth with a zesty persistence.
