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.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
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.

Stellenbosch Wine

South Africa

View all products

South Africa’s most famous wine-producing district, Stellenbosch, surrounds the historic town with the same name; fine winemaking here dates back to the late 1600s. Its valleys of granite, sandstone and alluvial loam soils between the towering blue-grey mountains of Stellenbosch, Simonsberg and Helderberg have the capacity to produce beautiful wines from many varieties. The climate is warm Mediterranean, tempered by the cool Atlantic air of nearby False Bay.

Perhaps most well-known for its Pinotage and Bordeaux blends, Stellenbosch also produces noteworthy wines from Syrah, Chenin blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc. The district’s wards—Banghoek, Bottelary, Devon Valley, Jonkershoek Valley, Papegaaiberg, Polkadraai Hills and Simonsberg-Stellenbosch—all produce distinctive wines from vines with relatively low yields.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
