A truly decadent gift encompassing our iconic and limited edition 2019 Tokar Estate Special Release ‘Amphora’ Tempranillo Amphora Tempranillo and a Cuvée Chocolate Amphora 65% Easter Egg.
Fruit from a specific section of our Tempranillo block was handpicked in the early morning and destemmed immediately. The berries were then gravity fed into a 1000L Amphora, made in Spain. The wine was made in a very hands-off manner, receiving an occasional gentle plunge during its 118 days on skins. After an awkward dig out of the amphora (only possible because the winemaker is skinny), the must was given a low pressure squeeze and the wine was returned to the amphora for elevage. Here it remained until just prior to bottling (without filtration or fining) in January.
The Egg is a chocolate made using one of the rarest cocoa beans in the world.
“Rich, diverse, unique”, was the chocolate maker's first notes after tasting the Piura Blanco for the first time. A native white cocoa bean from the ancient rainforests of Peru.
Starting with macerated summer berries and transitioning into an almost rum raisin experience that is so closely followed by its subtle chocolatey notes.
You will not believe that what you are tasting is indeed “only” a 65% chocolate.
