Diverse TOKARA wines from the kingdom of Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is a significant cornerstone of TOKARA, the prestigious family owned Stellenbosch wine estate, with a diverse selection of consummate wines.
TOKARA’s forward thinking vision for Cabernet Sauvignon from day one after owners GT and Anne-Marie Ferreira acquired the farm, has seen their vineyards on the foothills of the Simonsberg consistently producing exceptional, award winning wines.
“Cabernet Sauvignon has been the original focus variety since the first TOKARA harvest in 2000. Today the estate’s interpretation of this variety incorporates two singular expressions, a flagship blend and a pinnacle cuvée. These wines are true renditions of their terroir and everything the estate stands for – refinement, elegance and balance,” says TOKARA GM, Karl Lambour.
In his 2018 South Africa Report, U.K. wine commentator Tim Atkin singled out two top tier TOKARA Cabernet Sauvignons, the pinnacle cuvée, TELOS, and the Reserve Collection, as well as the flagship Director’s Reserve blend, all from the 2015 vintage, as his ‘wines of the year’ with scores of 97 and 96 points respectively.
Stemming from this illustrious lineage, TOKARA Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is in fine company. As a blend of the diverse Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard sites on the estate, the wine is the quintessential expression of TOKARA’s terroir.
It has inviting berry aromas of cassis, red currant and blueberries with whiffs of cocoa, fresh herbs and tobacco spice. Expect a mouthful of sweet berries, briar fruit and dark chocolate on the palate with hints of dried herbs on the finish. It is most enjoyable on its own and a slam dunk with grilled veal chops, meaty stews and a perfectly grilled piece of steak.
TOKARA Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 has a cellar door price of R120 per bottle and is available at leading stores countrywide. For online purchases, visit www.tokara.com.
