    At the centre of the Cape Winelands lies the Simonsberg mountain, a fynbos-rich massif, home to exceptional vineyards since the 17th century. It’s on the southern slopes, with unrivalled views over False Bay to Table Mountain, that you will find Tokara’s vineyards.  A paradise destination.

    The multi-award winning Tokara Director’s Reserve White is a  is a zesty blend of 69% Sauvignon Blanc and 31% Sémillon, made from grapes grown on the highest slopes of Tokara’s Stellenbosch property.  This is the classic white grape blend synonymous with the Bordeaux region of France but with new-world ripeness of fruit.   The grapes work so well together because Sémillon brings body and rounds out Sauvignon Blanc’s tart acidity and herbal notes.

    The wine displays a pale straw colour with striking brilliance that catches the light. The nose is complex, with notes of ripe passion fruit and pink grapefruit all intermingled with hints of lemon grass and freshly baked brioche. On the palate the wine is full and rich Aged nine months on the lees in one-third new French oak, the wine has amazing clarity and depth with a zesty persistence.

    How to serve it

    Lightly Chilled

    Pairs well with

    Chicken dishes, seafood starters and soft white cheeses, such as goat’s cheese. Pad Thai (the citrusy flavours of the wine will balance beautifully with the lime juice added to the dish).

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
