De Toren Fusion V 2006
Winemaking and Maturation
Aged in a climatized barrel room (16 degrees Celsius at 80% humidity) for 12 months in 50% new and 50% second fill, 225 Liter Oak barrels. Ninety percent French Oak and Malbec had the benefit of American Oak.
The exquisitely expressive De Toren Fusion V 2017 unveils intense aromas of juicy red cherries and ripe blueberries. It further compels with supporting nuances of perfume, creamy notes of cassis and an understated, underlining chalky minerality. The wine is beautifully textured, with detailed fruit flavours of creamy blackberries. Dense, yet vibrant the wine lingers with soft, fine grain tannins inviting one’s senses for the next sip. The preceding vintage of this ‘Left-Bank’ Bordeaux-style blend, have been rated a stellar 94 Points by the esteemed 2019 Platter’s Wine Guide.
With finely integrated oak flavours, this Platinum awarded wine, as granted by the South African Wine Index, has an exquisitely stylish departure. Enjoyment of this vintage will be multiplied with a few years of ageing in your cellar.
