TOKARA, the family owned Stellenbosch wine estate known for elegant wines with understated flair, has just released the second vintage of its ultra-stylish Méthode Cap Classique. This 100% Chardonnay is crafted from cool climate grapes grown on Tokara’s prized Elgin property. The 2012 vintage is a Blanc de Blancs Gold medallist at the 2019 Amorim Cap Classique Challenge and boats a 94/100 rating from the highly respected British Master of Wine, Tim Atkin.
The depth of flavour, elegance and complexity is extraordinary from spending more than five years on the yeast lees before disgorgement. The fine, consistent mousse interplays with aromas of freshly baked brioche, fresh apples and a hint of lemon blossom typical of Chardonnay. Delicate bubbles explode in your mouth upon entry leaving you with mouth filling flavours of toasted almonds, freshly buttered toast, notes of lemon and lime preserve and crisp minerality. This is an incredibly moreish bubbly that will leave you yearning for another sip.
The dashing Tokara MCC is set apart by its unusual Butterfly bottle, specially designed to lend gravitas and sophistication. The depth of flavour is extraordinary and well worth the cellar door price of R650 including a stylish gift box.
