Tokara earned a Top 10 spot in every Prescient Report it entered this year, winning the property winery of the year.


Tokara Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 
Best Red Overall & Best Cabernet Sauvignon - 95 Points

“94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot. Matured for 22 months in French oak, 44% new. Beauti-ful aromatics of red and black berries, some pleasant herbal character and a hint of vanilla. The pal-ate is full bodied with dense fruit, fresh acidity and fine tannins. Possessing layers of flavour, the finish long and dry, this is a very stylish offering.”

Tokara Reserve Collection Chardonnay 2019
Best Chardonnay - 95 Points

“Fermented and matured for nine months in French oak, 36% new. A super-complex nose with notes of burnt matchstick, lemon and orange plus attractive oak. The palate is rich and intensely flavoured but equally possesses a lovely line of acidity while the finish is long and saline. Powerful without sacrificing intricacy.”

Tokara Director’s Reserve White 2017  
Best Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Blend - 95 Points

“69% Sauvignon Blanc and 31% Semillon. Fermented and matured for nine months in 400-litre barrels, 29% new. A complex nose with top notes of honey and thatch before citrus, peach and blackcurrant plus a hint of flinty reduction. The palate is full but balanced with great purity of fruit, fresh acidity and a saline finish. Has a reined-in power about it.”
