Tokara Extra Virgin Olive OIl Collection

TOKARA, one of South Africa’s top producers of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), has released its world-class oils in a beautifully presented three-in-one collection.

Two acclaimed single varietal oils, Frantoio and Mission, as well as the Multi Varietal from the Stellenbosch estate’s verdant olive groves, make up the TOKARA EVOO Collection.

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 Spanish 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 top performer in 2019 with a Gold medal from the SA Olive Awards, 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, Insalata Caprese or drizzle over a minestrone.

TOKARA’s olive oil journey began in 2000 when co-founder Anne-Marie Ferreira decided to produce single variety oils that would set them apart from the handful of South African olive oil producers at the time. TOKARA focuses primarily on Tuscan varieties, each selected for a distinctive character and flavour profile.

The three-in-one TOKARA Collection comes in 250ml glass bottles and is presented in a striking gift tube. It is available exclusively at the TOKARA tasting room and Delicatessen at R250. For online purchases visit https://www.tokara.com/product/tokara-extra-virgin-olive-oil-gift-pack/
