De Toren Fusion V 2008

This harmonious classic full structure has voluptuous soft red fruit flavours that continuously compete to dominate one another as this wine spends time in the glass. Strawberries, black currant, liquorice and sweet oak flavours are rounded off with fine cinnamon and caramel fudge, which lingers long after swallowing. The well balanced tannin structure in combination with the wine’s intense flavours will ensure that this great vintage stands proud as it improves in the bottle over the next couple of years. This wine will benefit tremendously if it is decanted at least one hour before consumption.
