Tokara Director's Reserve 2016
This consistent award winner is a blend of 69% Sauvignon blanc and 31% Sémillon, made from grapes grown on the highest slopes of TOKARA’s Stellenbosch property. The wine displays a pale straw colour with striking brilliance that catches the light. The nose is complex, exhibiting attractive notes of ripe passion fruit and pink grapefruit all intermingled with hints of lemon grass and freshly baked brioche. On the palate the wine enters full and rich reminiscent of the aromas on the nose. Aged nine months on the lees in one-third new French oak, the wine has amazing clarity and depth with a zesty persistence.
