De Toren was South Africa’s first-ever gravity-fed cellar, designed to facilitate the gentlest movement of our wines. The estate’s vineyards were designed from the ground up to produce world-class wines and enormous attention was given to where and how each vineyard was planted.
The design of our iconic Left- and Right-Bordeaux-styled blends were planned and decided upon after which the vines were planted to match the make-up of these wines. Crafting a blended wine is like painting, with each texture, aroma, and flavor being a different color.
Our vineyards and winemaking methods are designed to ensure excellence, every sip of De Toren wine is, and should always be, a memory of the fruit’s perfection.
The intense, dark color lures one closer, to discover a rich, perfumed, classic Bordeaux styled nose. The focus and clarity of deep, ripe, dark fruit seduce the senses, supporting layers of oriental spices, rose petals, and a slight minerality. This wine reveals a perfect complement to the bouquet. The core of concentrated ripe juicy blackberries is perfectly supported and respected by fine-grained oak integration, giving this wine a long lingering finish, ending off delicately sweet.
