Experience a once-in-a lifetime Ultimate TELOS Wine Weekend




The Lot Info
The Lot Summary
TOKARA is situated on the Helshoogte Pass and has some of the most amazing views over the Stellenbosch Valley and False Bay. TOKARA is the embodiment of owner GT Ferreira’s philosophy that good wine, good food and good art go together to make a good lifestyle. This experience brings all of those ideals together for a once-in-a-lifetime weekend, with the premium, luxury, TELOS at the centre.

Consistently recognised as one of SA’s top wineries, the estate offers visitors a unique combination of award-winning wines, brandy and olive oils, a gallery of fine art, a restaurant featuring one of SA leading chefs as well as a delicatessen and sculptures. The pinnacle of what the estate can achieve is showcased by the TELOS.

Named after the Greek term describing the end of a goal-directed process, the 4 best barrels were selected from a 17-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon block planted on a 35% slope at 400m above sea level.

From Wine Cellar: “First launched in London and then Johannesburg, Tokara’s owner GT Ferreira presented the Telos against 6 of Robert Parker’s 100-pointers, including the likes of Latour and Cheval Blanc. Although it was of a different age and style, the Telos matched the precision, luxury and class of Bordeaux’s finest, showing that South African Cabernet Sauvignon is world-class. Rounded off with 5% Malbec and 3% Merlot, the wine is extremely precise, showing red rather than black fruit and unbelievable poise. The alcohol is an elegant 14% and offers a pure-fruited style with a hint of dried fynbos and luxurious, powdery tannins.”

The weekend will also include dining experiences at TOKARA Restaurant, headed by rising culinary star, Chef Carolize Coetzee. Renowned art curator Ilse Scheemers of IS Art will take guests on an art tour of the estate, among many other highlights.
