TOKARA
Director’s Reserve White 2016

R270.00

This is a blend of 70% Sauvignon blanc and 30% Semillon, made from grapes grown on the highest slopes of Tokara’s Stellenbosch property. Only the free run juice from the best blocks is used in this wine, spending a total of 9 months in French oak barrel of which 28% was new. The nose shows stunning complexity with fruit notes of ripe quince, passion fruit all intermingled with hints of lemon grass, toasted almonds and freshly baked brioche. The wine enters the palate full and rich reminiscent of the aromas on the nose. This wine drinks exceptionally well now but will continue to develop and improve till 2026.
