'Certified organic for the first time, 2018 has seamless balance of dense dark-berry fruit, toasty vanilla oak backed up by firm, ripe tannins promising good future. Cab-led (51%) 5-way Bordeaux blend, year in barriques, half new, mostly French. Also in smaller & larger formats, as ‘Z’.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'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.' – De Toren

Producer information De Toren acquired their first vineyards in 1991 and redefined the Bordeaux concept in South Africa ever since, establishing an iconic following. With the De Toren Fusion V, first the blends were decided upon and thereafter the vines were planted to match the blend. At De Toren the pursuit for perfection is evident in their grape selection and harvesting. They aim to 'create an environment where vines produce flawless fruit and then guard these grapes as they are gently steered from vineyard, to cellar to bottle' – De Toren.
