01 Sep TOKARA Cabernet Sauvignon cracks UK Top 100 list
TOKARA’s highly acclaimed Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon from the standout 2017 vintage has staked its claim on the international stage with a Top 100 ranking in the United Kingdom.
This phenomenal wine also earned critical acclaim from the French with a 91 point medal in the 2020 Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge, and was lauded Top 10 on home turf in the 2020 Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report.
The Wine Merchant Top 100 wine list is published annually in The Wine Merchant Magazine, the UK’s only trade publication devoted entirely to specialist independent wine retailers. The wines are judged exclusively by independent UK retailers. Two further top tier TOKARA wines, the Directors Reserve Red 2017 and the Reserve Collection Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2019, received Highly Commended awards.
The Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is a true expression of TOKARA’s premium vineyard blocks on the slopes of the Simonsberg. Full-bodied, richly textured and vibrant, the wine shows classic graphite notes, black cherry, briary fruits and pleasant hints of fresh herbs and red currant interwoven with five spice and cedar wood.
“Cabernet Sauvignon is King when it comes to red grapes in Stellenbosch. The marriage between the variety and the Tokara site is where the magic really begins,” says winemaker Stuart Botha.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a significant cornerstone of TOKARA and the forward thinking vision of owners GT and Anne-Marie Ferreira, has seen their vineyards consistently produce exceptional, award winning wines over more than 20 vintages.
