We’re excited to announce the first in a series of a wine amateur’s review of South African Wines. We might argue there is perhaps a place for reviews of this type, for the typical South African wine enthusiast who is keen to learn more.

Ultimately we’ll continue to educate ourselves in the finer art of wine tasting (think KGB Wine’s awesome UnWined appreciation courses) and we’ll gladly hear from experts (even if self-proclaimed) in the comments.

Tokara Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Wine Review

Our first impressions are that this is a well-rounded, easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon.

Hints of plum, spice, fynbos and smoky flavour coming through. It’s bold, shall we say full-bodied with a lingering finish that leaves a satisfied palate.

  • Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Alcohol: 15.0%
  • Sugar: 1.4 gm/l
  • Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8 % Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 2% Merlot
  • Retail Price: R110 – R120

We couldn’t find the official tasting note to link to (we’ll keep looking…).
