The body medium full. The tannins firm and dusty. The structure, tension, length and balance are made to drink early but, will benefit from five years in the cellar. Ripe, jammy, blue & red fruits. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, blueberries, raspberries. Black cherry cola, black licorice, weighty granitic soils, some black pepper, dark, rich soils, crushed dry rocks, dry stone, dry tobacco, black olive with bright; red, blue, purple and violets. The acidity is like a fresh stream. The finish is ripe, elegant and finishes with spice and dark tannins.

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.

Photos of, a pano view from the hillside top of their vineyards, Tokara entrance, a metal statue from a well known South African Artist and their sloping hillside vines.
