Delicately toasty notes of freshly dried straw and apple slices alongside tones of white melon and lime zest. The palate reflects a similar fruit profile to what the nose offers, though it’s all framed by ample acidity and a lightly pithy texture. It’s clean and lightly spicy through the close, showing touches of yellow flower and beeswax along with the yellow-fruit core.  Editors' Choice

Winemaker Notes

This is a blend of 63% Sauvignon blanc and 37% Semillon, made from grapes grown on the highest slopes of Tokara’s Stellenbosch property. This wine displays a pale straw colour with striking brilliance which catches the light. The nose is complex, exhibiting attractive notes of gooseberry and pink grapefruit all intermingled with hints of lemon grass and lightly toasted almonds. There is an underlying flintiness and graphitic note that affirms the contribution from the Semillon. On the palate the wine enters full and rich reminiscent of the aromas on the nose. The wine has amazing clarity and depth with a zesty persistence.
