"Perched in the Helshoogt Pass in Stellenbosch, Tokara is blessed with a stunning vista. All of Tokara’s wines are sourced from their own vineyards in Stellenbosch, Walker Bay and Elgin. Winemaker Miles Mossop took me through their portfolio of wines that includes some of the finest Cabernet-based blends that I have tasted and a stunning Sauvignon Blanc." Neal Martin August 2011

This wine is fresh, zesty and pure with some richness and sap. Never too big or robust, but simply beautifully poised.
