De Toren, Fusion V 2019

‘Fusion V’ indicates the coming together of the five noble Bordeaux varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon led, followed by Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, respectively.

De Toren have spent years mapping and calibrating the best plots for each variety on their site in Stellenbosch, so that each can reach its full potential.

The result is a delicious wine, with layers of fruit, spice and complexity. It will only get better with age. Decant before serving.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 vintage of De Toren Fusion V exhibits many “European characteristics”, due to the season’s cooler weather conditions. This has led to the introduction of distinct, new qualities in this vintage’s blend, amongst which a sense of greater purity along with phenolic ripeness at a lower sugar level, is evident. In addition, the Fusion V blend’s hallmark characteristics of great balance and harmony remain pleasingly apparent.

On the nose, a bouquet of ripe sweet red cherries, blueberries, sweet spice, and subtle nuances of oak prevail, accentuating the fruit. Seamlessly integrated and immensely elegant.

The taste profile of De Toren Fusion V 2019 is vibrant and moderately full- bodied. Fine-grained, yet polished tannins are present in this wine. The red cherry bouquet is unmistakable, leaving the 2019 vintage creamy, layered and delightfully well-balanced for its age.

    Fusion V is in a rich vein of form right now, consistently getting the thumbs up from me.
    The 2019 release is built on a foundation of Cabernet Sauvignon, with 43% Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Fresher and less oaky than it used to be, with just 50% new wood, this has blackcurrant leaf and red cherry fruit, succulent tannins, understated power and a whiff of granite. 2024-31
