Late last year we introduced you to the wonderful world of Nero. And it went bang! In just three short months, we sold out of all our precious stock and left our customers wanting more...
We have answered your call!
A series of Italian varieties grown in the heart of McLaren Vale, this beauty is unique before you even crack the top (Beauty refers to the wine and/or the lady on the label. Your choice).
With drinkability as the benchmark, the Nero get's a 10/10 from us.
A blend of Nero d’Avola, Touriga, Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Sagrantino. A savoury European styled wine. Medium bodied with a touch of dry tannins but countering sweetness from the fruit.
Clean and crisp but alluring and very drinkable in its youth.View full product details
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.
Straight from winemaker Steve Grimley...
"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 doubt and in time I’m assuming they’ll wrap everything up just nicely. Pretty good from where I’m sitting."

Never judge a book by its cover. So they say. In this case, I would say judge away. Cracking label and even better wine. We at Wine Brothers HQ love what the 5OS Project is doing - this is another classic example of their small batch mentality shining through.
5OS winemaker Steve Grimley is a fan...
"No guessing this has a decent dollop of Touriga blended in, it jumps out of the glass and attaches like squid to the side of your boat. I’m hooked but I can see a scenario early in a dinner party where this wine is debated feverishly. Reduced raspberries, like a coulis, vanilla and cinnamon cake straight from the oven hit you first up. The tannins are grainy and the oak has been really well handled and sits in the periphery and I expect will continue too. It’s adolescent at best, far from complete, but once it all comes together should blossom into a very nice bottle of wine."

The team at 5OS rarely, if ever, let us down. They love pushing the boundaries and putting together a portfolio of unique wines. This wine is unique enough in conception (a kitchen sink full of varieties), however, came out the other end with a pretty respectable look about it. Typical 5OS...
FROM THE WINEMAKER
Just starting to look its age, and all the better for it. Musky, Fronti type aromas leap out of the glass, with a hint of aged Riesling character in amongst it all as well. I really like the viscosity of the palate, heaps of texture but there’s a citrus tartness that whips it back into shape just when it feels like it’s about to spread. Can’t imagine this jumps off the shelf, but in fairness it probably should. Should hang in there for a couple more years as well. Nice drink.
Give this wine something with a bit of substance to mix in with. Thinking white fish, maybe chicken.
