2017 Vintage: Gold Gilbert & Gaillard, Veritas Gold, 4½ Stars Platter

One of South Africa's biggest selling red wines. This wine has a beautiful garnet colour. There are berry aromas of cassis, red currant and blueberries on the nose complimented by underlying notes of cocoa, fresh herbs and tobacco spice. The palate is packed with sweet berry fruit, flavours of dark chocolate and briary fruit with hints of dried tobacco on the finish. This wine will drink well now but will benefit from cellaring and will mature well into 2022.

Food Pairing
Enjoy with grilled veal chops, meaty stews or a fantastic steak.

The Estate
Several farms in the popular South African viniculture regions Stellenbosch, Elgin and Hemel-en-Aarde Valley belong to the winery Tokara. Through multiple locations, the winery succeeds in providing the perfect conditions for each and every grape variety. State-of-the-art cellar techniques in interplay with lots of experience create true premium wines such as the Tokara Cabernet Sauvignon year after year. Tokara Wine Estate is nestled among the Stellenbosch wine farms and the estate offers a variety of elements such as delicious olive oil, wine, brandy, a magnificent art gallery, the delicatessen for day-time eats, and one of the best restaurants in Stellenbosch boasting one of South Africa’s best chefs.

The Tokara Cabernet Sauvignon matured in partly new French barriques for 18 months. This way it gained a high ageing potential and should therefore spend some years in the cellar in order to develop its full character. Yet it is also absolutely wonderful when opened right away.
