Tokara Sauvignon Blanc 2018
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. Richly fulfilling flavours on the palate and finishing dry, the ideal white drunk nice and cold on a summer's day!
