The grapes for this wine originate from Tokara’s Stellenbosch property, as well as bought in fruit from two Stellenbosch vineyards where we have a longstanding relationship with the grape grower and specific blocks that we pick each year.
The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks for overnight settling, after which the juice was racked and run to barrel with some lees added back. 100% of the wine fermented in 228L French oak barrels 5% being new barrels. The wine spent 9 months in barrel ageing on the gross lees with regular lees stirring. 50% of the wine completed malolactic fermentation during barrel ageing. The wine was bottled in October 2019 after tartrate stabilisation and filtration. 110 995 bottles were produced.
