A taste of gold

This week we’re tasting gold … with Tokara

Tokara –  the highly acclaimed, family owned wine and olive oil farm on the outskirts of Stellenbosch – was dished up a delicious gold medallist award at the 2019 SA Olive Awards.

Coming out tops was the 2019 Tokara Multi Varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oil … all fresh green olive fruit, wild rocket and butter lettuce, finishing off with walnut and spicy notes. It’s excellent as a baste for free range, well-matured steak, and works well in dips and salads … and for a true feast, all you need is fresh ciabatta drizzled with this oil, thin slices of mature cheddar and freshly ground salt. Yum.  It’s at your local deli, and if you’re in the Cape these holidays, consider doing a structured olive oil tasting at the Tokara Tasting Lounge. Details: 021-8085900.
