TOKARA’s acclaim as a producer of world-class red wines from prized Stellenbosch vineyards knows no bounds with two Cabernet-led reds attaining Top 10 status in consecutive South African wine reports.
TOKARA Director’s Reserve Red 2017 secured Top 10 in the 2020 Prescient Cape Bordeaux Red Blend Report, with TOKARA Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 making the Top 10 cut in the 2020 Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report. Both reports are convened annually by Winemag.co.za.
“Poised and precise” with a palate of “great purity and freshness to go with fine tannins”, is how the wine is described in the 2020 Cape Bordeaux Red Blend Report. The wine has intense aromas of red and black fruits with hints of dried cranberry, baking spice and graphite.
“It enters the palate with incredible purity and focus,” adds TOKARA winemaker Stuart Botha.
The Top 10 Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is a true expression of TOKARA’s premium vineyard blocks on the slopes of the Simonsberg. The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Report describes the wine as “a very stylish offering” with “layers of flavour” and a long, dry finish.
“Cabernet Sauvignon is King when it comes to red grapes in Stellenbosch. The marriage between the variety and the Tokara site is where the magic really begins,” says Botha.
The full-bodied, richly textured Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is vibrant and bright with classic graphite notes, black cherry, briary fruits and pleasant hints of fresh herbs and red currant interwoven with five-spice and cedarwood.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a significant cornerstone of TOKARA and the forward-thinking vision of owners GT and Anne-Marie Ferreira has seen their vineyards consistently produce exceptional, award-winning wines over more than 20 vintages.
