Tokara Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Stellenbosch, Elgin & Walker Bay, South Africa
Sauvignon Blanc 93%, Semillon 7%
Tokara is a beautiful wine and olives estate perched high on the Helshoogte Pass between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Their Sauvignon Blanc (with a smidgen of Semillon, making it something of a Bordeaux style white blend) comes from Stellenbosch itself as well as cooler coastal sites in the Elgin Valley and Walker Bay.Mostly fermented in stainless steel tanks but 5 per cent goes into barrel before blending together. It is a dry style of New World Sauvignon Blanc with complex flavours of guava and papaya alongside more Old World Sauvignon flavours like asparagus and lemongrass.
