We are pleased to announce and present the magnificent 2020 vintage official release of our ultra-luxurious Bordeaux styled blend, Book XVII. In line with our vision of continuous improvement and quest for perfection, this wine tells the story of the masterful alchemy of only the finest fruit through true passion and devotion.
The bespoke packaging, like this exquisite wine, is crafted by hand. The eagle, illustrated by a renowned international artist, using an ancient engraving technique to carve out visual elements, shares the greater story behind Book XVII. A story as powerful as this remarkable wine. A story about ancient writings, unique terroir and the specially selected, sustainably farmed vines this wine is crafted from. It also shares the meticulous attention to detail throughout the winemaking process and the seamless synergy between technology and tradition.
“This wine is the heirloom of years of winemaking in De Toren’s continuous quest for perfection.”
-Anja Bekker | Head of Marketing-
An outstanding wine from an exceptional vintage. It closely resembles the 2015 vintage. There is a bouquet of dark, perfumed blackberries, plum, vanilla, and a hint of sweet oak spice on the nose. This wine delights with a dense yet vibrant palate and flavours of minerality, blueberries, and freshly ripened black current. As one has come to expect, this wine has a delicate acidity that holds all its components in perfect harmony, as well as fine, polished tannins.
Each of these bespoke, limited produced bottles is individually labelled and numbered by hand. An exceptional wine with potential for decades to come, displayed in a wooden case with an accompanying, iconic key – the very same key that will unlock this wine’s every pleasure.
