I bought this for my wife as she loves an oaky Chardonnay and I remembered this being one (insert joke about wife needing more wood here). A quick sniff promises a lot but there’s a slightly sour acidic aftertaste that lets the side down.
Tokara’s Cab is like the perennial mid-table football team. Never in danger of being bad enough to go down, but missing that champion quality to take home the silverware. It’s decent but missing something.

I’m battling with manflu at the moment, which has made my, normally dull-witted, sense of taste even duller than normal. That said, this still tastes great, went perfectly with an enormous tuna and cheered me up from my manflu-induced slump.
Strong and heady. Real rustic, cold wet day, drink by the fire wine. eded something heartier than the pizza I had it with.
Blackberries wrapped in velvet. Fantastic.
creamy, smooth and rich. Roasted almond flavours. Heavyweight white wine
