The Tokara XO Potstill Brandy sparkles in a beautiful amber colour in the glass. In the bouquet, this exceptional brandy is rich and complex with aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Moreover, the spicy nuances are wonderfully underlined by dried figs, peach, raisins and orange blossom. On the palate, this richness of facets is continued with delightful notes of caramel, dried apricots, spices and cocoa butter. The Tokara XO Potstill Brandy owes this aromatic diversity to its slow maturation process in Limousin-oak barrels. The basis of the Tokara Potstill Brandy is the distillate of a Chenin Blanc, which was left on the yeast for five months after fermentation, then went through double distillation and then matured in oak. By the way, the "XO" in the name stands for "extra old", since for the Tokara XO Potstill Brandy only barrels were selected that had at least ten, some even up to sixteen years time to mature. This makes the expressive Tokara XO Potstill Brandy a long-lasting and unforgettable culianry experience.

Tokara – cool Temperatures make for rich Grapes

The fairly young winery Tokara originated in 1994 when GT Ferreira purchased the estate. Back then, it was only thought of as a residence, but soon the optimal location for wine cultivation was discovered. Shortly after, the first vines were planted here. Today, Tokara is comprised by three different acreages: there are the southern slopes at the Simonsberg, the highlands in Elgin and the Hemel-en-Aarde valley. Each of these areas makes for very different wines and a connoisseur of Tokara can recognise the different terroirs often with the first sip. Due to the location of the acreages, there are rather low temperatures at the estate and a cool wind. Vines and the grapes growing on them ripen especially slowly and have enough time to develop their aromas and flavour carriers to the full potential.

Fantastic View and casual Atmosphere

Those who have been to the winery Tokara will never forget the grand sight from the summit of the Helshoogte Pass. With a breathtaking view of the mountains along the False Bay up to the Table Mountain, the estate itself belongs on every itinerary. Connoisseurs can treat themselves to culinary gems in the restaurant. All this in a relaxed and casual bistro-like atmosphere that simply invites you to stay.

The Director’s Reserve Collection

Tokara´s flagship is the so-called Director’s Reserve Collection. The Director’s White is a cuvee from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. An initial aroma of fresh lime is harmoniously brought into balance by the taste of tropical fruits. A blend of the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec: that is the Director’s Red. Notes of currant and mint carry the full-bodied but always elegant wine.
