Platter Review: 4*
De Toren Délicate reveals an exemplarily sensory pleasure of fresh, luscious red strawberries with deep, elegant flavours and a mystical aroma of cinnamon.
This silky-smooth Malbec-dominated blend, is a superbly fresh, light styled red blend that reveals its exquisite nature when served slightly chilled. The gentle balance of acidity gives this wine its unique character of being fresh, youthful and light. Malbec 49% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc 16% Cabernet Sauvignon 15%
Perfect on its own as an aperitif or with a lunchtime salad, a tantalizing Spanish tapas or cheese platter, including a beautiful array of preserves, homemade jams, matured cheese and cured meats. This wine has very versatile food pairing possibilities. For optimum enjoyment, decant atleast one hour before consumption. It is recommended to serve this wine at optimal temperature (10 - 12 degrees Celsius). De Toren Délicate should be enjoyed immediately, due to the low tannins
De Toren is a small boutique South African winery that has propelled itself into the front ranks of South African wine producer in an absurdly short period of time. Proprietors Emil and Sonette den Dulk, escapees from the Johannesburg business world, "stumbled upon this little piece of heaven" on the Polkadraai Hills overlooking False Bay, in 1991.
They conducted extensive research before planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot and using as many as 13 different clones. A state-of-the-art gravity driven winery was built and the name De Toren (tower in Dutch), alludes to the way in which De Toren claims to be the only winery which follows a 100% gravity fed vinification process. De Toren is committed to sustainable farm practices.
