Tokara is a picture perfect destination which offers visitors a unique combination of award-winning wines, a range of olive oils and a five year old pot still brandy. The estate boasts a fine dining restaurant which is ranked among South Africa's best and an informal delicatessen. The property also has fine artwork displayed throughout the property for the enjoyment of its patrons.

Situated 50km to the east of Table Mountain, the TOKARA "home farm" is rested on the Simonsberg side of the Banghoek Valley, at elevations of between 350m and 550m. Soil profiles are of weathered sandstone and decomposed granite, the combination lending structure, perfume and longevity to our wines.

The highland vineyard lies to the south of Stellenbosch in Elgin, a cool-climate area atop Sir Lowry's Pass. Soils are predominantly Table Mountain sandstone imparting an ethereal scent to both Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc.

Its name was derived from the founders’ young children, Thomas and Kara.

This wine displays a brilliant pale straw colour. Aromas of fresh pineapple and apricot spring from the glass. Lightly toasted brioche characters, testament to the barrel ageing on the lees, compliment the nose. The entry on the palate is vibrant with fresh sweet lime, grapefruit and subtle ginger spice notes. The palate has a smooth texture with a refreshing finish.
