Tasting Notes:

Mineral tones greet you at first, followed by sweet ripe blackcurrant, cinnamon, caramel and licorice. The flavours that remain on the palate after it is swallowed are long lasting. The fusion of acidity, ripe tannin structure and complexity derived from the five varieties, combines to bring out the best in this stunning vintage. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominance in this Bordeaux style blend will see the wine age way into the future.

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.
