Tokara Director's Reserve Red
Situated 50km to the east of Table Mountain, the Tokara “home farm” is rested on the Simonsberg side of the Banghoek Valley, at elevations of between 350m and 550m. Soil profiles are of weathered sandstone and decomposed granite, the combination lending structure, perfume and longevity to our wines. Their Highlands vineyard lies to the south of Stellenbosch in Elgin, a cool-climate area atop Sir Lowry’s Pass. Soils are predominantly Table Mountain sandstone imparting an ethereal scent to their Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc.This wine has a stunning depth of colour. The nose displays intense aromas of red and black fruits with hints of dried herbs, baking spice and graphite. The wine enters the palate with amazing clarity. The flavours are those of dark cherries, blackberries and ripe plum skin. There is a hint of spice on the mid-palate which leads to fine, firm tannins on the finish.
