5OS Malbec was one of our original wines back when we launched Wine Brothers in 2016. Fast forward to 2018 and we welcome back this popular Malbec back to the family.
When it comes to experimenting, pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo, this wine does it all. The Wine Brothers affectionately call it the love child; a concoction conceived from the most unlikely and illegitimate marriage of varieties, that comes together to produce an absolute winner. A fabulous wine to challenge that know-it-all wine connoisseur.
FROM THE WINEMAKER
"Looks and smells like it’s too young to get in, the brilliant purple hue a sure giveaway to what lies ahead. Fresh dark plums and mocha steal the show before smoky, earthy varietal characters jump into the light. The big, dusty tannins are somewhat out of place in what’s not much more than a medium to full palate, yet they deserve the benefit of the doubt and in time I’m assuming they’ll wrap everything up just nicely. Pretty good from where I’m sitting."
Heavy wine. Heavy-er food needed. Can match it with red meat - lamb, steak...etc
JC SCORE 9/10
I have gone big on this. I don't dish out 9's lightly. Darking, alluring, lengthy. Probably, number 1 on the list of 5OS wines that I bring out at a dinner party, normally with a scene setter like "Wait till you try this..."
