Tokara prides itself on making wines that are site specific, produced from their picture perfect, prime location vineyards on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, the Highlands in the Elgin district and Siberia in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near Hermanus. High altitude sites with cool temperatures contribute to the restrained and elegant style of winemaker Miles Mossop’s wines.

 The 2011 Director’s Reserve Red is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. It has a well-defined and focused bouquet with scents of raspberry, wild strawberry, cedar and mint – all vibrant and stylish. The palate is medium-bodied with dusty blackberry and raspberry notes, well-integrated oak with a slightly introspective, earthy finish with a long pepper aftertaste. I would afford this a year, perhaps two in bottleNeal Martin 31st Oct 2014 www.robertparker.com

Review

“Tasted blind. Greenish pale gold. Very pungent green somehow burnished and very interesting aromas well melded. Particularly attention-grabbing. The merest hint of reduction but overall a high-toned whole that recalls baked apples with just the right amount of cloves. Intense. Broad and intensely fruity with great balance. No hurry to drink this unique wine – not like any other Sauvignon/Sémillon style I can think of. Long and complex.” [2012 vintage]  Jancis Robinson, Purple Pages of  jancisrobinson.com
