9. De Toren Fusion V

De Toren is a relatively young operation that set out with a very narrow goal in mind, to produce the best Bordeaux blend in South Africa. In the pursuit of this dream, the owners made the choice to produce only one wine at first, adding a second several years later to help them achieve their goal.

The results speak for themselves. De Toren’s Fusion V, five for the number of grape varieties used in the blend, is a tremendously exciting wine to taste. The blend of varieties seems to be knit together very well, though in the mouth it is as if each variety retains its distinctive character, releasing it slowly and sequentially allowing you to enjoy a wine that continues to evolve in the mouth. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the texture of De Toren’s wine: bright, almost piquant at times, though always seamless.

    Any list that leaves off Ray Krause from Westbrrok Wine Farm is incomplete. His Fait Accompli is one of California's crown jewels. You need to find that and be as stunned as I have been - with each new release.

    Yes, I saw what you did here Gregory - no complaints from me. I'd say well done!

    Some price points would have been nice. I love the Ramey Claret. It is my "go to" wine.
