An exceptional producer, vintage and wine.
De Toren has firmly established itself at the top of the pecking order in South Africa for its Bordeaux blends, particularly the Fusion V, a Cabernet dominated five way Bordeaux blend.
From its first release in 1999, De Toren Fusion V has consistently been highly reviewed by wine critics throughout the world. The 2015 De Toren Fusion V has just been released into our market and it has all the trappings of greatness.
The 2015 vintage for reds in South Africa was the vintage of the decade, able to compete with some of the world's finest and wines like the 2015 De Toren Fusion V bring this to light. Plush and concentrated, yet showing lovely refinement and balance, this drinks surprising well out the gate but greater things are to come for those with patience.
From the 2018 Platter SA Wine Guide: “2015 Near-perfect conditions produced a smaller but pristine crop displaying exceptional quality across the style spectrum. One of the great vintages, possibly surpassing 2009.”
Stellenbosch is known for producing top quality Cabernets/Cab blends. This wine brings together region, vintage and producer, in one world-class wine. The scores are in: 94 Wine Enthusiast and 92 Wine Spectator. We are offering this stellar South African red Bordeaux blend for $54.99 and $49.49 on six bottle or more purchase. In the context of full flavored California Cabernets and Bordeaux blends this represents terrific value.
