Director’s Reserve White 2017, Tokara

£29.95 per bottle

About this wine

Tokara Directors Reserve White is a consistent award winning blend of 69% Sauvignon Blanc and 31% Sémillon, made from grapes grown on the highest slopes of Tokara’s Stellenbosch property.  The nose is complex, exhibiting attractive notes of ripe passion fruit and pink grapefruit all intermingled with hints of lemon grass and freshly baked brioche. On the palate the wine enters full and rich reminiscent of the aromas on the nose. Aged nine months on the lees in one-third new French oak, the wine has amazing clarity and depth with a zesty persistence.

Ageing potential: This wine drinks exceptionally well now but will continue to develop and improve till 2027.

Food pairing: Best served with creamy seafood dishes or grilled white fish.

The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
