Superb Stellenbosch location coupled with the winemaking knowledge of Miles Mossop combine to bring you one of the best South African red wines you'll ever taste.

This is no shrinking violet. It's a full-throttle Syrah which manages to balance that power with savoury ripe prunes, blackberries, and blueberry flavours. It's had a light touch in the winery, with grapes allowed to soak and infuse for up to five days before they begin to ferment by themselves.

There's also a conscious effort to let the marvellous Syrah sing by itself, without being overpowered by oak. Tokara's wines have always been on the radar of those in the know. Now's your chance to see what all the critical acclaim has been about for yourself.

The Producer

Tokara offers anyone lucky enough to visit a unique combination of award-winning wines, brandy and olive oils, fine art, a restaurant and a deli. The winery, just outside Stellenbosch, is nestled among vineyards on the crest of the Helshoogte Pass with sweeping views across False Bay all the way to Table Mountain.
Tokara prides itself on making wines that are site-specific, with initial plantings on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain followed by two other farms: Highlands in the Elgin district and Siberia in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near Hermanus.

The Winemaker

Winemaker Miles Mossop is a graduate of Stellenbosch University with double science degrees in both geology and geochemistry followed by oenology and viticulture. Miles cut his winemaking teeth at Knappstein in the Clare Valley, Australia and then in Condrieu, France and at Planeta in Sicily. Returning to the Cape in 2000, he came straight to Tokara and has completed every vintage since that date.

The Region

A range of classic varietals are planted on the slopes of the estate, some up to 400 metres above sea level and it's this altitude and cool sea air that are a contributing factor to the restrained and elegant style of these Stellenbosch wines.
The grapes for the Walker Bay Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from the Siberia vineyard on the cool southern slopes of the Babylonstoren Mountain, a mere seven kilometres from the coast near Hermanus and at 285 metres above sea level.

Mushroom Risotto and Caramelised Onions

The wholesome, rich and earthy flavours of mushroom risotto pair perfectly aged and oaked reds. As this risotto is baked it gives you the perfect opportunity to crack open a bottle of your favourite Rude wine and let it breathe before serving. We'd recommend Tokara's beautiful 2013 Syrah.
