Sauvignon Blanc Tokara, Stellenbosch 2016
Tokara prides itself on making wines that are site specific, produced from their picture perfect, prime location vineyards on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, the Highlands in the Elgin district and Siberia in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near Hermanus. High altitude sites with cool temperatures contribute to the restrained and elegant style of winemaker Miles Mossop’s wines. South Africa Swee
The wine displays a vibrant deep straw colour with flecks of green. The aromas on the nose are a melange ripe tropical fruits such as guava, papaya and passion fruit intermingled with the more herbaceous aromas indicative of a cooler climate Sauvignon blanc such as asparagus, nettles and fresh cut grass. On the palate the wine is surprisingly full and rich with mouth filling flavours reminiscent of the characters on the nose. The Mid palate is broad and textured but the finish fresh and clean. Unmistakably Sauvignon blanc.
