De Toren Red Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch Z 2004

Member Review by streamertyer:

Wow. Absolutely delicious. Drinks like a wine 3x its price. Floral, tobacco and blueberry nose. Candied plum, spices and blueberry on the palate. Some sweetness, but not overdone. Nice long finish with fine tannins. Drinking wonderfully right now with a couple of hours in the decanter. A heady wine that walks the line between old and new world styles. Uncanny bargain.

de Toren Z 2004: Neben dem legendären Fusion V können wir Ihnen nun auch den ebenfalls phänomenal guten De Toren " Z " anbieten.Der " Z " ist ein erlesener, eleganter Bordeaux Style Wein der mit der bewährten Sorgfalt und Begeisterung geschaffen, wie sie allen De Toren Weinen zuteil wird. Ihn kennzeichnen fruchtige Aromen von Pflaumen und Blaubeeren, dazu eine Ahnung von Rosenknospen und eine delikate Zimtnote. Hinzu kommen die sanfte Säure, die dem Wein eine angenehme Vitalität und Frische verleiht und die perfekt eingebundenen Tannine.     Weingut:  De Toren Private CellarRegion:  StellenboschRebsorten: 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 18% Malbec, 19% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit VerdotInhalt:  0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur:  16 -18°CLagerfähigeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)AuszeichnungenInternational Wine and Spirits Competition: Silver AwardTop Ten of BEST RED WINE ON SHOW, Cape Town and JohannesburgDecanter World Wine Awards: Bronze AwardSwiss International airline awards: Bronze AwardVeritas: Bronze AwardStephen Tanzer: 90 points Rotwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
