Stellenbosch estate Tokara has announced the release of a new flagship red wine that is the “culmination” of almost two decades of work and costs over £200 a bottle.

The new top blend from the estate is called ‘Telos’ and the first vintage to be released is the 2015.

A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec and 3% Merlot, all the grapes are hand harvested block by block in a carefully managed series of phases. There is rigorous sorting and a mix of whole and crushed berries are then fermented with indigenous yeasts, basket pressed and then only free run juice is collected and matured in barrel for 22 months prior to bottling.
