About this Item

Director's Reserve White, 2014
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 Cape Bordeaux White Blend, made by long-serving winemaker Miles Mossop, is impressively age-worthy, developing wonderful nutty complexity alongside the fruit and herbs.

Critics Ratings

'Even in a tricky vintage like 2014, this stands out as one of the best Bordeaux-style white blends in South Africa. Combining Sauvignon Blanc with 31% Semillon, it’s like a Cape version of a top Pessac-Léognan, with subtle toast and beeswax, a herbal undertone and pithy grapefruity flavours. Drink: 2016-20' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2016, 95/100
