De Toren
Fusion V, 2008
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. The Fusion V was introduced to the international markets in 1999 and the winery itself was nominated for best ‘New World Winery of the Year’ by Wine Enthusiast in 2011. 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).

 ‘(a Bordeaux blend based on 56% cabernet sauvignon): Full medium ruby. Sexy dark fruits, coffee and spices on the nose. Then lush, sweet and seamless, with glossy flavors of red and dark berries, truffle and spices. Wonderfully ripe, velvety wine with sweet tannins, superb balance and impressive length. A very classy, harmonious wine in a rather New World style.’ – Stephen Tanzer, (March 2011), 93/100

Glossy, acclaimed top-ranker. 5-variety Bdx red, usually cab-led, as in 08. As always, svelte, seamless & ageworthy; complex interplay of flavours, spice, blackcurrant, herbal notes, with trademark tailored tannins the perfect foil.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2011, 4.5*

This sleek, solid and focused red shows hints of grilled herb and toast that are well-integrated into the core of red currant and damson plum fruit. A touch of red liquorice adds length to the finish. A remarkably consistent wine from year to year. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot... 600 cases imported.’ – Wine Spectator (December 2004), 89/100
