Another 5 Star Rating for De Toren

The 2006 Vintage of De Toren Fusion V received the sought after accolade of 5 stars from the John Platter Wine Guide and what a fitting way to celebrate 10 years of making wine.

Following straight in the footsteps of the 2006 vintage, the 2007 vintage made it to the John Platter short list for 5 stars again, but did not crack it. Even more important though Decanter Magazine in their January 2010 edition thought the 2007 vintage was also worthy of 5 stars. This is also the second 5 star rating for De Toren in Decanter Magazine.

The last wine to achieve this rating was the 2002 vintage of De Toren Fusion V. De Toren usually do not submit their wines for review by Decanter, but Albie Koch attended the WOSA Mega Tasting in London recently where John Cullimore of Decanter tasted the wine and requested it to be presented to Decanter.

This is the first rating that came in for the 2007 vintage which was released only on 1 November 2009..

Fusion V is the crown of the De Toren Cellar’s labour – a tasting sensation and ageing jewel!

Fusion V is named such because it is a blend of the only the best of the five red Bordeaux variatals that the farm produces. Made up of all of the classic varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot – the final assemblage is created by a panel that includes wine makers, sommeliers and enthusiasts, and the result is a wine that is judged of the highest quality by a range of tasters even before it is released.

The De Toren wines are still on strict allocation and there will be even less wine available in the trade. They still have some stock on the farm. Click Here to order
