De Toren, Délicate NV

(1 review)

A seductive, elegant red blend from this Stellenbosch based red wine specialist.
Notes of juicy red fruit dominate on this wine, with some freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries and a touch of rose. Medium-bodied, velvety tannins and deliciously drinkable.

The Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are matured in third-fill French Oak for 12 months. The Malbec is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to retain the immense purity of the fruit.

This is finesse and elegance in a balanced blend. Serve it slightly chilled and let it open up for a while first.

While it displays intense red undertones, this limited-production wine is soft and delicate on the palate, making it the perfect culinary consort, not to mention the reason a number of the world’s top dining establishments choose it specifically for their dedicated tasting menus.

    More serious than NV would imply, black cherries, violets & tarry notes combine with upfront 14% alcohol in malbec, cab franc & cab blend. Older oak adds spice, softness. Intended for light chilling.
