This lovely Chenin/Viognier blend offers delicious baked vanilla, lemon and citrus on the nose and mouthfilling, opulent flavors of spice, tropical fruit and lemon on the palate. A warm and sultry white with a long finish.
Tokara’s winemaker has crafted this full-bodied wine under his own label. It has plenty of flesh and orange and apricot flavors from Viognier, despite the other two-thirds being Chenin Blanc. But the real dominant force here is the oak, which the wine wears tightly wrapped, hiding the fruit character. Vanilla and spice hit the palate and continue through the finish…
A sumptuously meaty nose with hints of cinnamon, plum and spice lead on this lovely red blend from South Africa. With its waves of leather, berry and herbs, and its solid structure and ageable pluck, this is an affordable classic that will be welcome on the table now, or do well in the cellar for a few years.
Honeysuckle, spice and lime on the nose lead into juicy flavors of citrus and pineapple on the palate. A balanced combination of spicy oak, minerals and fresh fruit, the wine is both fun and unfolding. The Chenin Blanc and Viognier both have a prominent place here, but neither overpowers.
Elegant, integrated and balanced, this Bordeaux blend from lauded winemaker Miles Mossop offers an Old World-style experience that is both subtle and stylish. A touch of spice and oak on the nose lead into taut but tasty flavors of smoky spice and fruit.
