Bon Courage Estate Blend Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2014/16

Jordan Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2019/20

A variety of Chardonnay clones planted on different slopes and harvested at different ripeness levels and all of it fermented and matured in French oak barrels. These practices help to achieve natural balance and allow for different textural components which are then blended to achieve finesse and complexity. Bold and graceful with fragrances of lemon biscuit and overripe oranges. Delicious with fresh fish and seafood, or for the ultimate indulgence try with southern fried chicken!

Jordan Long Fuse Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Progressive techniques such as overhead fermenters, pump-overs and gravity flow allow for the extraction of fully developed flavours and soft ripe tannins without compensating the tension and elegance captured from the various cabernet slopes. Here especially, the climate plays a significant role to allow great fruit expression and classic essences of cedar, brambles and toasted tobacco. View full tasting note here


Tokara Sauvignon Blanc 2020

The wine has a vibrant light straw colour with flecks of green on the rim. There is an abundance of green melon, green apples, subtle lemongrass and granadilla on the nose. The wine enters the palate with concentrated flavours reminiscent of the nose. This finish is refreshing and crisp with a slight oyster shell salinity that makes it quite moreish. This wine is best enjoyed cold on a hot summer’s day. Either on its own or it can be served with grilled chicken, fish, prawns or fresh oysters. View full tasting note here


Tokara Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The mid-palate is weighty yet it leads to a textured finish with lingering grainy tannins. Pair with Grilled steak with Bearnaise sauce or Roast lamb shoulder with rosemary and garlic jus, potato dauphinoise and long-stemmed broccoli with lightly toasted almond flakes. View full tasting note here
