About this Item

Fusion V, 2002
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
De Toren has been focused on developing and re-defining the Bordeaux concept into something uniquely South African since they acquired their first hectares in 1991. Specialising in luxurious & award-winning Bordeaux-style blends.The winery itself was nominated for best ‘New World Winery of the Year’ by Wine Enthusiast in 2011 and has established an iconic following. At De Toren the pursuit for perfection is evident in their grape selection and harvesting. They aim to ‘create an environment where vines produce flawless fruit and then guard these grapes as they are gently steered from vineyard, to cellar to bottle’. 
 Under the guidance of Albie Koch this Bordeaux Blend has accumulated an energised and praised following from wine aficionados both in South Africa and abroad (especially in the US).

Critics Ratings

One of the leading Cape blends, always the full house of Bordeaux red grapes (cabernet, malbec, merlot, cabernet franc, petite verdot), their proportions varying with the vintage; 02 tight, restrained, herbal nose gives way to more expressive, well-crafted palate. Chewy but ripe, quite approachable. Mainly French oak, 50% new.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2005, 4.5*
