This wine has a deep dark inky garnet colour. An intensely complex wine with aromas of black currant, Christmas cake and pepper spice layered with herbal notes and a hint of mint. The palate is full and rich, mirroring the nose with flavours of Christmas cake, cassis and spice, layered with cedar and a eucalyptus finish. The tannins are chewy and broad but the wine has a focused and intensely long finish.
Food pairing: Tomato Oxtail stew served with fresh parsley garlic gremolata or Grilled fillet steak served with red wine sauce, bone marrow, shallots and French fries.




This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 82%, Petit Verdot 10% and Merlot 8%. The grapes originated from TOKARA’s premium vineyards on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. Only grapes from the best blocks and from the best parts of these blocks are used. The average yield is between 5 and 9 t/ha (32 & 58 hl/ha). The 2006 vintage was a hot and dry vintage, following on from a low winter rainfall in 2005. This led to extremely small berries and bunches resulting in dense concentrated red wines with full ripe flavours. The grapes were hand picked at optimal ripeness from the 8th of March to the 3rd of April. The grapes were de-stemmed, before passing across a sorting table for the removal of all unwanted material and then crushed directly into tanks for fermentation without the use of pumps. There is first a period of cold maceration for up to 5 days before the fermentation starts spontaneously (without the use of selected yeast strains). The grapes were fermented in stainless steel and wooden upright (foudre) fermenters. Pump-overs, della stage and punching down of the cap were implemented three times a day for extraction until fermentation was completed. The tanks were given maceration post fermentation if the quality warranted it, depending on tannin development. The wines were put to barrel for malolactic fermentation after which they were racked, sulphured and put back to barrel for a further maturation. The wines spent a total of twenty months in 96% new French oak - the rest being older French oak barriques. During the maturation the wines received five rackings, all done barrel to barrel. The wine was bottled in January 2008 after a light egg white fining and without filtration.
