TOKARA, the acclaimed family owned Stellenbosch wine estate, has excelled as a top preforming cellar at the WM 10 Year Old Wine Awards for the 4th consecutive year with four wines breaking the venerable 90 point barrier.
Showing its prowess as a world class producer of wines of remarkable ageability and consistency, TOKARA was ranked second highest performer overall once again this year.
The competition, held annually under the Winemag.co.za banner to showcase age-worthy South African wines, attracted 74 entries from the 2010 vintage.
The four TOKARA 2010 wines – three whites and a red – awarded 90 points or higher on the 100-point scale, are two Chardonnays, the Reserve Collection and Zondernaam, and the Director’s Reserve White, all on 91 points, followed by the Director’s Reserve Red with 90.
“We pride ourselves not only on the consistency and longevity of our wines but also of our people. After 20 vintages at TOKARA under his belt, our viticulturist Aidan Morton is the scientist behind our vineyards. Coupled with the youthful exuberance of Stuart Botha in the cellar, it’s a perfect match,” says Karl Lambour, TOKARA General Manager.
These award winning wines are a reflection of everything the estate stands for – refinement, elegance and balance and above all, are a true expression of place.
