De Toren Z 2016 comprises a symphonic blend of the five Bordeaux varietals, dominated by Merlot. This Right-Bank Bordeaux-style blend showcases aromas of red fruits, mulberries & blueberries. It’s tantalizingly soft on the tongue. A pure and soft integration of oak, lends a creamy finish with a hint of aniseed on the nose. It follows through perfectly on the palate, revealing juicy-red fruit. The integrated, complex and finely knit tannins of this Merlot-dominant blend finish of velvety, yet the blend is vibrant and expressive. The magnificent, preceding 2015 vintage of this blend, were granted a spectacular 94 & 93 Points, by Wine Enthusiast & Platter’s Wine Guide respectively.
