'The reputable De Toren Z 2017 Director’s Reserve red blend exudes intense Merlot characters. Aromas of dark red fruits comes to life on the nose, accompanied by fine textured tannins on the palate. The integrated, complex and finely knit tannins finish of velvety, yet the blend is vibrant and expressive. Absolutely phenomenal!

Producer information De Toren acquired their first vineyards in 1991 and redefined the Bordeaux concept in South Africa ever since, establishing an iconic following. With the De Toren Fusion V, first the blends were decided upon and thereafter the vines were planted to match the blend. At De Toren the pursuit for perfection is evident in their grape selection and harvesting. They aim to ‘create an environment where vines produce flawless fruit and then guard these grapes as they are gently steered from vineyard, to cellar to bottle.’ – De Toren.
