De Toren is Dutch for “The Tower,” and the estate is named after a tower that stands high above the cellar. Owners Emil and Sonette den Dulk, together with winemaker Albie Koch, created South Africa’s first five-varietal Bordeaux blend, Fusion V. The farm uses the latest technology for vineyard management and to help determine harvest times. However, actual harvesting and production are done almost entirely by hand, in keeping with Emil’s aim for selection excellence and Albie’s insistence on natural winemaking. Their passion has created wines to be treasured.
This soft, approachable ruby-hued beauty is a true testament to vines lovingly reared and winemaking raised to an art form. A Right Bank-style Bordeaux blend, De Toren Z comprises a symphonic blend of five Bordeaux varietals. You’ll find it tantalizingly soft on the tongue, with a hint of aniseed, liquorice, raspberry and cranberries lending a fresh acidity to its polished finish… plus, of course, all the finesse that makes Bordeaux-style wines so prized among the world’s most enthusiastic wine lovers.
This wine is a very versatile food pairing wine due to its great acidity and weight. It works exceptionally well with very fine spicy foods. Its aromas of mulberries and blueberries perfectly complements rich fish, lamb, duck, beef and poultry.
