Description

The Tokara Director’s Reserve Red displays an appealing red claret colour with an intense core and a ruby rim. The nose shows complex aromas of ripe red and black fruits with hints of dried cranberry, baking spice and graphite. The wine enters the palate with incredible purity and focus. Flavours are those of dark cherries, blackberries and ripe plum skin. Sumptuous and full, there is a hint of spice on the mid-palate which leads to fine, firm tannins on the finish.  This is a truly classy wine and one which will age gracefully for years to come.


Attention to detail is key here with the harvested grapes going through two sorting processes before before being gently crushed directly into tanks for fermentation using gravity feed and no pumps, ensuring the most gentle handling of the juice.  Cold maceration lasts for up to 5 days before the fermentation starts spontaneously in a mixture of stainless steel and upright wooden foudre with natural yeast. 


The 2019 is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc. The grapes originated from TOKARA’s premium vineyards on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain outside of Stellenbosch.

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!

2016 Les Charmes de Kirwan, Chateau Kirwan, AC Margaux

Bordeaux Blend

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years.  It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.
