De Toren is behind the Cape's first five-varietal Bordeaux blend and its Fusion V line has become one of South Africa's most sought-after and iconic bottles.
De Toren Fusion V 2019
56.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.4% Merlot, 14.4% Malbec, 9.6% Cabernet Franc, 4.8% Petit Verdot
The Cape’s first five-varietal Bordeaux blend, Fusion V has become one of South Africa’s most sought-after and iconic bottlings. Opulent and powerful. On the nose, a bouquet of ripe red cherries, blueberries, sweet spice and oaky nuances. Vibrant and full-bodied on the palate, fine-grained yet polished tannins shine. Concentrated, layered and deliciously well-balanced – it finishes with a lengthy symphony of sweet black fruit.

About De Toren
Reverdito Barolo La Serra 2016
Vineyard: La Morra Production: 2,795 bottles Soil: Limestone, Clay & Sand One of the most famous and respected vineyards in La Morra municipality. Barolo from La Serra is known for its elegance and freshness. Reverdito’s 2016 La Serra is wonderfully silky and refined yet powerful, with all of the lift that is such a signature of this high-altitude vineyard.
Coquard Beaujolais ’69’ 2020
Classic aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry dominate, with playful hints of blackcurrant to round it out. The complex minerality fleshes out the gentle tannins, resulting in a satin-smooth mouthfeel and a memorable finish. Best enjoyed on the cooler side (11-12° C) and great with charcuterie, poultry and cheeses.
Chateau Peyrabon Haut Medoc 2019
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc, 4% Petit Verdot 91 points Decanter: “A touch of exotic spice, sweet cinnamon, white pepper, raisins, dried fruit and red cherries. This has a lovely, dense and chewy texture with bright red fruit flavours such as raspberries, strawberries and red cherries. Fruit-forward and confident. Acidity keeps things lifted and fresh, and this has an appealing brightness, even a touch too bright at this point - the acidity and fruit need more time to integrate.”
Dalem Fronsac 2018
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc 93 Points, Wine Spectator: Offers a gently steeped profile, featuring plum and blackberry compote flavors, lined with a light toasty thread. A tobacco note lingers. 93 Points, Robert Parker: A deep garnet-purple color and compelling notes of blackberry preserves, wild blueberries and ripe, juicy black plums, with hints of dark chocolate, licorice and black olives. The full-bodied palate appears bright and fresh with the lively black fruits framed by soft, velvety tannin's, finishing long and savory. Nicely done!
Collemattoni Adone Toscana IGT 2019
95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot. A knockout at its price point. Enjoyable now, with the addition of Merlot increasing the suppleness of the fruit and palate. Delicate aromatics of red fruits, underbrush, truffles, violet petals, and spices spring from the glass. Sleek and polished, with some mocha and gentle herbal notes adding to the palate. Collemattoni is Certied Organic
Montezemolo Barolo Monfalleto 2018
The Nebbiolo that comes off this property is some of the best in La Morra. Even in challenging vintages the Monfalletto terroir yields Nebbiolo that is both powerful and supple. Insiders know that this is one of the best terroirs in Barolo. 94 points, James Suckling - ‘Muscular and buff for the vintage with plenty of plum, terra-cotta and dry soil aromas and favors. Full body, flavorful finish’. – J Suckling (2012 Vintage)
Mas Gabinele Faugeres 2017
Syrah 40 %, Grenache 30 %, Carignan 30% Lovely deep red colour, dark even. Black fruit nose, almost all black fruits: cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, cooked blueberry and damsons. Toasted spelt loaf aromas, Havana cigar and cocoa beans (crushed naturally). Full-bodied mouth-feel, firm and already nicely integrated despite the powerful tannins. Serve with risotto with porcini mushrooms.
Les Deesses Muettes Garrus 2019
Beautiful red color. Intense nose of red fruits. Well-balanced on the palate with round and integrated tannins. Supple and easy-drinking wine. Best served with grilled meats, roasts, salads or soft cheeses.
