De Toren acquired their first vineyards in 1991 and have redefined the Bordeaux concept in South Africa ever since, establishing an iconic following. The original flagship Fusion V was introduced in 1999 and earned them a nomination for best New World Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast. Based on the Left Bank blends of Bordeaux and crafted from Bordeaux’s ‘Noble Five’ varietals, this was meticulously created under the guidance of cellarmaster Albie Koch. These are the only double magnums on auction and arise from the illustrious 2009 vintage!
‘Rich and polished, with nicely layered dark currant, fig and coffee notes wrapped with ample but integrated toast. The long, cocoa powder-filled finish hangs on nicely.’ Wine Spectator, 92/100
