Tokara has you covered for sought after gifting ideas this festive season.
In addition to their Cap Classique and XO Potstill Brandy beautifully packaged for connoisseurs, their collection of world-class extra virgin olive oils in a stunning gift tube will definitely hit the spot.
The Tokara olive oil gift tube comprises two acclaimed single varietal oils, Frantoio and Mission, as well as their Multi Varietal, all derived from the verdant olive groves on this family owned Stellenbosch wine and olive estate.
Frantoio, the most important olive variety in Italy and the foundation of Tokara’s prized blended olive oils, is medium to intense with green grassy notes. The palate is sublimely balanced between green and bitter tones, with a nutty aftertaste. It melds beautifully with Mediterranean leg of lamb, springbok carpaccio or fresh gazpacho.
The Mission variety is mild and gentle with a finely balanced grassy, herbaceous character and a walnut aftertaste, making it an all-round oil. It goes perfectly with garlic and rosemary roast potato wedges, poached trout or cold cucumber soup with fennel.
The Multi Varietal, Tokara’s flagship olive oil, is a consummate blend of Frantoio, Leccino and Mission varieties. It has elegant notes of fresh green olive fruit, wild rocket and butter lettuce with a spicy walnut finish. Let it work its magic in spicy leaf salads, caprese or minestrone.
The three-in-one Tokara Collection is available exclusively at the TOKARA tasting room and Deli at R255. For online purchases visit https://www.tokara.com/products/
