2004 the color of this wine 😍 I have no words. So incredibly smooth, but retains fruity juicy flavors with a pepper hint 🤤 — 2 years ago
As you can see from the photos, Tokara is a beautiful place to visit and Karl their General Manager was an amazing host.
The nose reveals, lime, lemon, tropicals, green melon, pineapple, honey notes, nicely soft granite soils, powdery chalkiness, saline, yellow lilies and spring flowers.
The body is full, thick creamy, splendid & a touch waxy. Lime, lemon, tropicals, green melon, pineapple, honey notes, nicely soft granite soils, powdery chalkiness, saline, yellow lilies and spring flowers. The acidity beautiful. Rich, well balanced amazingly delicate finish.

Vibrant red with purple edges, pronounced legs. Nose of ripe strawberries, dark cherries, and cassis with some oak. High tannins, full-bodied, with oak, forest floor, ripe dark cherries, and ripe blackberries. Smooth, long aftertaste. Great wine! — 4 years ago

Punching way above its price tag. This is a lovely ripe Bordeaux blend from SA. — 2 years ago
This is another South African Chardonnay that gives me a sense of Sonoma Chardonnay without being punished by oak. Green apple, lemon, lime, peach, some butter, saline, beautiful soft minerality and jasmine white flowers. Great acidity and well polished finished.
