A vibrant light golden straw colour. The bouquet has aromas of lemon preserve, lemon blossom and a hint of toasted almonds and buttered toast. The entry on the palate is fresh and vibrant with stunning lemon zest, toasted brioche, and marzipan flavours. The mid palate is full and rich but leads to a beautiful crisp lingering finish with a hint of flinty minerality on the finish.

The winery, on the R310 outside Stellenbosch, is nestled among vineyards and olive groves on the crest of the Helshoogte Pass with sweeping views across False Bay and all the way to Table Mountain. Tokara prides itself on making wines that are site specific. Even though vineyards were initially planted on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain at the Stellenbosch property, two other farms, Highlands in the Elgin district and Siberia in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near Hermanus, were additionally acquired. In doing so Tokara is able to produce wines which express the distinct characteristics of these three prime wine producing regions. The Tokara farm was purchased in 1994 by GT Ferreira for residential purposes, but it wasn’t long before the great potential for planting vineyards was recognised and explored. Classic varietals were planted on the 400m above sea-level slopes. The cool air and low temperatures contribute to the excellent quality of Tokara wines. All viticulture procedures at Tokara strive to create a balance between the vegetative and reproductive qualities of the vine, which is beneficial to both the environment and the quality of the estate’s final product.
