The Tokara Reserve Collection Stellenbosch Chardonnay presents itself to gourmets in an intense, golden yellow colour in the glass. A fruity scent of lemon fills the air and is supported by almond aromas. Mineral and oak notes can also be detected. At the beginning, the tongue notices slightly mineral, roasted nuances. Directly following, notes of grated lemon peel become apparent. After another taste experience with papaya, pineapple and jam nuances the white wine ends with a fresh and creamy finish.
The Tokara Reserve Collection Stellenbosch Chardonnay tastes well in combination with sweet seafood. Yet also the combination with chicken, turkey or veal is highly recommended. Furthermore, the white wine goes perfectly with mild Caribbean dishes with the taste of tropical fruits.
Tokara is well-known for the creation of premium wines such as the Tokara Reserve Collection Stellenbosch Chardonnay. As the soils on which the vines grow are constituted by oak leaves, pebbles and stones, the white wine receives its famous creamy finish.
After the harvest, the Tokara Reserve Collection Stellenbosch Chardonnay matured in new and old oak barrels for eleven months through which the creamy finish was developed. Gourmets can enjoy the white wine right away, yet it can also spend some years in the cellar and will keep its unique character.
