Cape Winemakers Guild

Tokara Tribute 2012

The grapes originate from four adjacent vineyards on the upper southern slopes of the Simonsberg mountain, between 350 to 530 metres above sea level. The Semillon was picked on the 10th February while the 3 different blocks of Sauvignon Blanc were picked late February/early March. Only free run juice was used. The Sauvignon Blanc fermented in 500 litre light toast barrels (approximately 30% new) while the Semillon fermented in 225 litre medium toast barriques (50% being new). The wine was blended in November and returned to barrel for further maturation. Bottled in February 2013. Tasting Notes: The wine has a stunning nose of honeydew melon, passionfruit and lemon- grass. There are hints of white flowers, toasted brioche and marzipan. The entry on the palate is full and rich with stunning clarity of fruit and weight, with a clean middle palate and a long textured finish of toasted almonds and pine nuts. The concentration and acidity of this wine will ensure that it ages well for a further 10 years.
