Tasting Notes:

The Cabernet Sauvignon based blend shows elegance with hints of sweet candy floss and cacao on the nose. The intense colour is reminiscent of liquorice, dark chocolate and blackberries. On the palate this wine reveals minerality and hint of sweetness, enhanced by well-balanced tannins combined with carefully extracted oak, giving superb structure and depth that will only improve with careful cellaring.

The iconic Left Bank-based blend from De Toren, Fusion V is meticulously crafted from Bordeaux’s ‘Noble Five’ varietals and, with its complex flavours of liquorice, black cherry, cedar and dark berries, it offers a stylish departure for sophisticated oenophilic tastes.Soft as spun silk, with a lingering hint of sweet fruit on the back palate, this is a wine that will only improve with age.

Aged in a climatized barrel room (16 degrees Celsius at 80% humidity) for 12 months in 50% new and 50% second fill, 225liter Oak barrels. Ninety percent French Oak and Malbec had the benefit of American Oak.

Food pairing

Pairs exceptionally well with perfectly tender grilled or roast lamb, with garlic, rosemary, and a hint of honey lemon.
