Tokara, Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2017South Africa, Stellenbosch
Tasting notes on the 2016 vintage:
'Compact, with admirable cassis fruit expression, which, together with 2016’s other layers, involve & seduce: graphite, finest charcuterie, hint of dark chocolate. Different styling to 2015, equally impressive, & also good cellaring potential.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)
'Tokara's entry-point Cabernet Sauvignon receives support from 13% of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It's a light, savoury, green-edged blend with stylish oak and a leafy, refreshing finish. Drink 2019-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 90/100
