The Family range from Miles Mossop Wines is their flagship range of wines dedicated to Miles’ family which he considers one of the most important things in his life.
Each wine in this contemporary range of fine wine bears the name of a family member. Each an expression of the highest quality in their style, reflecting a sense of place and unmistakably South African. Produced with fruit forward character, balance, texture and age-ability in mind.
This wine is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 16% Petit Verdot and 11% Cabernet franc from specially selected vineyards in and around Stellenbosch.
There is an intense deep dark garnet colour to this wine.
Ripe blackcurrant, blueberry and dark cherry aromas are evident on the nose with hints of pencil shavings and cigar box. The palate is full rich and powerful with intense blackcurrant and dark black berry notes. The tannins are firm yet forgiving with a structured mid-palate and a lingering finish of dried Italian herbs, cedar and tobacco leaf.

My winemaking philosophy is simple; source grapes from exceptional vineyards, pick them at the correct time and help guide them through the natural process of winemaking to produce expressive, individual wines of the highest quality, wines that I enjoy to drink. – Miles
Miles joined Tokara as a young winemaker in 2000, after stints in Clare Valley, Napa Valley, Sicily and a few harvests with some of SA’s leading winemakers. He took this estate from infant to one of South Africa’s top wine brands in a rather short time.
Miles Mossop Wines already started in 2004, whilst still full time at Tokara. He left Tokara in 2018 after 19 very successful harvests, to focus 100% on his own brand.
