De Toren Red Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch Fusion V 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A glossy blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 14% Malbec, 10% CabernetFranc, 4% Petit Verdot...intensive purple/black in colour with satin rim. Sweetripe fruits with the freshness of rose petals that open up to an earthiness,sweet sugars, cinnamon and liquorish that talks to different parts of thepalate at the same time. Aged for 12 mths in 50% new oak (90% French 10% US).Black fruits, cherries, peach and caramel is well integrated to create aclassic but muscular style, one blessed with the trademark fine Fusion Vtannins. A wine that should be enjoyed now with decanting, alongside a side ofbeef. (David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)

Wine Tasting NotesCabernet Sauvignon 55%; Cabernet Franc 20%; Merlot 11%; Malbec 10%; Petit Verdot 4%This harmonious classic full structure has voluptuous soft red fruit flavors that continuously compete to dominate one another as this wine spends time in the glass. Strawberries, black currant, liquorice and sweet oak flavors are rounded off with fine cinnamon and caramel fudge, which lingers long after swallowing. The well-balanced tannin structure in combination with the wines intense flavors will ensure that this great vintage stands proud as it improves in the bottle over the next couple of years.
