Tokara, the prestigious family owned Stellenbosch wine estate, has won international acclaim once again with its luxurious, hand-crafted XO Potstill Brandy bringing home a second Brandy Masters Gold Medal.
This annual competition is presented by The Spirits Business, the leading international spirits trade publication based in the UK. The highly contested 2022 Brandy Masters rewarded the finest brandies on the world stage with 120 entries judged by a panel of spirits specialists.
Tokara XO Potstill Brandy also won a Brandy Masters Gold Medal in 2021 and made its 5-star debut in Platter’s 2022 South African Wine Guide.
The Chenin blanc base wine is double distilled retaining only the heart fraction for ageing in individual French Limousin oak casks for 13 years and longer. Unctuous and complex with great depth of character, the palate delivers rich flavours of caramel, dried apricots and cocoa butter with a spicy finish and fine length.
“As a result of slow, prolonged barrel ageing in predominantly older Limousin barrels, the aromas and flavours are more concentrated allowing the brandy to develop its distinctive character, fine length and depth of aftertaste,” explains Tokara winemaker Stuart Botha.
Producing a refined brandy of this calibre in the age-old Cognac tradition has been the intention of GT and Anne-Marie Ferreira ever since they set their sights on making world class wines at Tokara over two decades ago.
The ultimate choice of aficionados, Tokara XO Potstill Brandy comes in an elegant decanter presented in a beautifully designed case. This world class XO brandy is available at the Tokara Tasting Lounge and selected purveyors of fine wines at a cellar door price of R990. For online purchases visit www.tokara.com.
