The Tokara Méthode Cap Classique Blanc de Blanc sparkles light golden in the glass and impresses from the first moment with its extremely fine and long-lasting perlage. The bouquet unfolds the enchanting scent of lightly roasted almonds and lemons with a hint of fresh green apples. On the palate, the interplay of pleasant acidity and fine mousse as well as the aroma interplay of lemons, green apples and notes of pastry are delightful before the Tokara Méthode Cap Classique Blanc de Blanc ends with a mineral finish. The elegant sparkling wine from Chardonnay grapes was produced according to the traditional method, underwent the second fermentation in the bottle and then lay on the yeast for another 79 months. Therefore, this exceptional sparkling wine is best enjoyed pure as an aperitif, because the Tokara Méthode Cap Classique Blanc de Blanc is the perfect companion for any festive occasion.

Expert Judgement

"Made in frustratingly small volumes every year, Tokara's Blanc de Blancs bubbly comes from a two-hectare block of Chardonnay in Elgin and spends seven years on lees. Toasty, white pepper and aniseed aromas flow into a palate that's nuanced, sappy, savoury and dry. " Tim Atiken South Africa Report 2021

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.
