Tokara Director’s Reserve Red 2020

Product information "Tokara Director’s Reserve Red 2020"
The Tokara Director's Reserve Red glows an incredibly dark red in the glass. For the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (71%), Petit Verdot (13%), Merlot (10%), Cabernet Franc (3%) and Malbec (3%), only the best grapes from the best vineyards on the slopes of the Simonsberg were used. They deliver a complex red wine that impresses on the nose with a multi-layered play of aromas of dried tobacco leaves and currants. A hint of violets and spices successfully rounds off the first impression. On the palate, notes of ripe plums, blackberries and black cherries are particularly noticeable. Spicy undertones and fine tannins make the taste experience of the Tokara Director's Reserve Red perfect, before the red wine with its strong character ends with a long-lasting finish. The red wine was matured for 22 months in French oak and is an excellent companion to dark meat, which may come from the grill. But the Tokara Director's Reserve Red is also a treat on its own.

Tokara Wine - Intensive and Multifaceted

Tokara wine excites critics as well as connoisseurs with its intensive bouquet and a multifaceted taste. The aromas are always harmoniously balanced and deliver a well-rounded wine. Red as well as white wines from the Tokara estate reflect the terroir of the cultivation areas. Tokara wine can also be stored for a long time; some even gain more character with long further maturing. The winemakers also use highly modern cellar technology and are always succeed in retaining the natural taste of the grape varieties.

Tokara Winery Uses Modern Technology

Every Tokara wine was created using modern technology to deliver the best product possible. The winery is the first in South Africa to use the NDVI process, an infrared analysis which can identify the slightest changes in the vines. That is how the winemakers from the Tokara winery have the option to intervene early and, above all, targeted. The wine cellar is also highly modern, as the winemakers use computer controlled programs as a support. The emphasis lays on the supportive function, as nothing can replace the long experience of Tokara winemakers.

Tokara Combines Modernity with a Laid-Back Tradition

Tokara is located at the Helshoogte Pass, only a few kilometres away from the town Stellenbosch, and is therefore situated at the centre of South African wine cultivation. The estates architecture combines modern aspects of wine growing with a laid-back and uncomplicated design. Natural and warm materials give the strong and clear lines an organic note. Additionally, the almost magical view of the False Bay and Table Mountains deliver exceptional scenery for the many guests of Tokara. This attitude towards life, coupled with great energy, is reflected in the Tokara wine.
