This wine displays a brilliant pale straw colour with hints of green. Aromas of freshly cut grass, nettles, green figs and lemongrass emerge from the glass with a lingering hint of sea air on the nose. The palate is crisp and fresh with intense flavours of nettles, gooseberries, cut grass and greengage jelly; and a slight salty finish. There is a crisp acidity and a full rich mid palate finishing with flinty, mineral and talcum notes. This wine drinks beautifully now but will develop well until 2015.

Wine Advocate

Tokara's finest Sauvignon by some distance is the superb 2010 Reserve Collection Elgin Sauvignon Blanc that was cropped at 5 tons/hectare. It has an arresting nose of asparagus, nettle and damp earth with crystal-clear definition, a bouquet surfeit with character and mineralite. The palate shimmers on the entry with notes of cut grass, lime zest, spice and Granny Smith apples and then fans out nicely to a crisp, herbaceous finish packed full of freshness. This is an excellent, complex Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now-2017+.

Score: 91. —Neal Martin, August 2011.

Wine Spectator

A lean and bracing style, this delivers white asparagus, thyme, fleur de sel and flint notes that all crackle through the bony, mouthwatering finish. Drink now.

Score: 89. —James Molesworth, October 31, 2012.
