Looks Premium, IS Premium: TOKARA’s award winning extra virgin olive oil

TOKARA, one of the premium producers of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) in RSA, excelled with three gold medals at the 2020 Aurora International Taste CHALLENGE.

Yes, count ’em, 1 – 2 – 3!

The top performing TOKARA oils are two EVOO blends, the flagship Premium and the superbly balanced Multi-Varietal, as well as the Frantoio single variety.
Held annually to recognise food product excellence, this was the first time that olive oil and olives were adjudicated at the Aurora International Taste Challenge with competitors from South Africa, Spain, Bolivia, the USA and Angola.

TOKARA Frantoio, a spicy oil with a nutty character considered the most important olive variety in Italy, is the foundation of TOKARA’s full-flavoured blended olive oils.

The TOKARA Multi-Varietal, a gold medallist in the 2019 SA Olive Awards, is a persistent oil that lingers on the palate striking a fine balance between bitter, fruity and green flavours.

The top tier TOKARA Premium is a meticulously blended EVOO with a lovely herbaceous character showing notes of olive leaf, rocket and artichoke.

TOKARA, the family owned wine and olive estate situated on the crest of the Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch, focuses primarily on Tuscan varieties, each selected by olive oil master and operations manager, Gert van Dyk, for its distinctive character and flavour profile, from mild to more robust.

In addition to TOKARA’s regular range of olive oils, unfiltered EVOO from the 2020 vintage in the style of TOKARA’s Premium blend, will be available on tap at the TOKARA Deli from September.

Well done, TOKARA!
