Cellar Master, Charles on the Book XVII 2018 Vintage
From the timeless unison of craftsmanship and nature, it gives us great pleasure to officially introduce to you the extraordinary 2018 vintage release of our ultra-lavish Book XVII. With each bottle beautifully packaged by hand, inside awaits a creation of sheer luxuriousness and impeccable craftsmanship.
This handcrafted red blend was a logical evolution of De Toren’s acclaimed Bordeaux styled blends. An expression of meticulous winemaking and our philosophy of ‘extreme care’ viticulture. In a word a showcase wine, to show the world what South Africa is truly capable of producing.
“Our winemaking techniques are truly unique – we take extreme care in our vineyards, going down to berry level in that search of perfection when crafting this luxurious wine.”
Charles Williams | De Toren Cellar Master
With an outstanding ageing potential of 40 years plus, we would definitely recommend uncorking and enjoying this beauty with grace and sharing it with some of your nearest and dearest. This will give you the privilege of honouring the past while applauding the present.
