Tokara, Reserve Collection Chardonnay 750ml 2019South Africa, Stellenbosch
'This wine display’s a vibrant golden colour. Aromas of lemon curd, honeysuckle, oatmeal and toasted brioche emanate from the glass. The wine enters the palate with bold, ripe yellow citrus flavours leading to a creamy mid-palate with subtle vanilla, star anise and toasted almond. There is a continuous saline focus and feeling of freshness throughout. A wine of restrained power and finesse.' – Winemaker
Alc: 13.8% | RS: 1.4 g/L | TA: 6.4 g/L | PH: 3.28
Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'It's good to see this impressive wine bottled under screwcap, as it will age well given the right storage conditions. Lightly wooded and showing the freshness that's a feature of the style, this is creamy, sappy and long on the palate, with precision and focus. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100
'Best vineyard blocks, 2018 portion bunch pressed, barrel fermented, third new, 11 months on lees. Essence of citrus, oak in support as buttered toast underpin, brisk acidity keeping it youthfully vibrant, promising a future.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)
