    Director's Reserve Red 2015 - Tokara

    Tokara's Directors Reserve Red is an expressive red wine cuvée made from the Cabernet Sauvignon (67%), Merlot (16%), Petit Verdot (7%), Malbec (5%) and Cabernet Franc (5%) grape varieties.

    In the glass this South African red wine appears in a deep dark ruby red. In the nose, intense notes of ripe cassis, fruit bread and fresh mint unfold. The personality is wonderfully sumptuous and rich with subtle aromas of black currant - underlaid with cedar wood, fine spices and mint. The tannins are wonderfully soft and silky and lead to a long lasting finish.

    Vinification of the Tokara Director Reserve Red

    After the ripe grapes have been picked by hand, they are immediately taken to the wine cellar. The alcoholic fermentation of this wine takes place in open and closed fermentation stands. The mash is regularly submerged and pumped over. For its silky character, this wine is aged in French barriques for 22 months (80% new and 20% used wooden barrels).

    Food recommendation for the Director's Reserve Red Tokara

    Enjoy this dry red wine from South Africa with lamb square with rosemary and potatoes, ratatouille or cheese specialities.
