De Toren acquired their first vineyards in 1991 and 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.
‘Glossy top-ranker, acclaimed both sides of the Atlantic. 57% cabernet sauvignon leads the Bdx ‘Big 5’. Coiled, smoky aura of 2006 offset by deft fruit weight; persistent tail underscores quality, echoing refinement. Yr 50% new Fr oak, tad Am.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 5 stars
