Chardonnay 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 has a vibrant light golden straw colour. The nose 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 end.
