About this Item

Fusion V, 2005
1 (1 x 1) 6000ml

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’.

Critics Ratings

‘Glossy top-ranker acclaimed both sides of the Atlantic; 57% cab leads bdx ‘Big 5’. Explosion of 05 flavour: luscious berries in firm tannin basket, long ripe finish. 50% new Fr oak, 10% Am.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 4.5* (2008)

‘A sleek, modern style, with raspberry and cassis fruit flavors layered with suave mocha and tobacco notes. Ample concentration, with a long, polished finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The best vintage yet for this very consistent wine.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 92/100 (Dec 2007)
