“The 2010 Fusion V is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 13% Malbec, 11% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, basket pressed and aged for 12 months in French and American oak (new and used). It has a ripe blackberry, dark cherry, mint and tobacco scented bouquet with well-integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with burnt toast and a touch of bacon fat on the entry. The oak is a little pronounced but in sync with the fruit and they should meld together nicely. There is a lovely peppery prickle on the finish."—Neal Martin
Fine spices and dark chocolate infused liquorice surprise on the nose. Tasting this aromatic and delicately concentrated wine reveals blackcurrant, dried plumbs and fresh rose petals. A hint of black pepper with a dash of rocket salad leaves finishes the taste sensation. This wine is well structured and held up by a firm but elegant tannins that has a soft and sweet finish as it tip toes down your throat.
