About this Item

Director's Reserve Red, 2012
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
On the crest of the Helshoogte Pass is the picturesque wine farm of Tokara owned by ex-banker GT Ferreira. Tokara’s first vines were planted in 1998 with a state-of-the-art winery erected shortly thereafter. 20 vintages later, Tokara is one of South Africa’s premiere wine producers. 
This widely revered flagship red is a Cape Bordeaux Red Blend which was made by long-serving winemaker, Miles Mossop.

Critics Ratings

From the elegant and enduring vintage of 2012, this wine was rated a whopping 96 points by Tim Atkin MW In his 2016 comprehensive report on South Africa. Only 3 red wines ranked higher that year.

'For my money, this is the best Director’s Reserve yet from Tokara, and that’s saying something. Blending Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Petit Verdot and a soupçon of Cabernet Franc it’s dense and deeply coloured, with scented oak, velvety tannins and a plush core of cassis, graphite and green herbs. A majestic wine. Drink: 2018-28' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2016, 96/100
