De Toren Private Cellar Fusion V
The remarkable De Toren Fusion V 2018 vintage expresses great balance, purity and intensity – both on the nose and on the palate. There is a pronounced poise of red and dark fruit with a hint of sweet spice. This bold, full-bodied blend further unveils amazing depth, leading to a long finish on the palate, expressing silky tannins and oak flavours. Beautifully textured and complexed, the wine lingers with detailed flavours, inviting one's senses to the next sip.
The preceding vintage of this ‘Left-Bank’ Bordeaux-style blend has been rated a stellar 94 Points by the esteemed 2020 Platter’s Wine Guide. This Platinum awarded wine, as granted by the South African Wine Index in 2018, has an exquisitely stylish departure. Enjoyment of this vintage will be multiplied with a few years of ageing in your cellar.
