Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Spectator 9/30/19
Sleek and focused, with notes of nutmeg gliding along, showing red currant and damson plum fruit midpalate. The tannins are very well-integrated. A touch of sanguine adds complexity on the finish. Harmonious. Drink now through 2025. 3,890 cases made, 406 cases imported.

Showcasing the Cape’s ability to turn out great Left Bank-style blends is this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine from Stellenbosch’s De Toren Private Cellar. Fusion V, the boutique winery’s flagship label, takes its name for its selection of the best of Bordeaux’s ‘noble 5’ grape varieties that comprise the blend; 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, 14% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot. A rich and concentrated wine filled with mixed red and black berries, hints of dark chocolate and an oak-spiciness around the edges. It has a lovely smooth texture and is extremely drinkable. A great recommendation from one of the sommeliers at The Butcher Shop restaurant and deli in Cape Town, where it's also available to purchase. Drinking Window 2019 - 2029
4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Latest blend of stellar 5-way Bordeaux red blend has cab down to 52%. 16 (94 pts) elegant & sophisticated, with fruitcake generosity, tobacco & spice highlights framed by well-judged oak, 50% new. Seamless, it will age well.



Winemaker Notes

The iconic Left Bank-based blend from De Toren, Fusion V is meticulously crafted from Bordeaux’s ‘Noble Five’ varietals and, with its complex flavours of liquorice, black cherry, cedar and dark berries, it offers a stylish departure for sophisticated oenophilic tastes.Soft as spun silk, with a lingering hint of sweet fruit on the back palate, this is a wine that will only improve with age.
