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.
WB SCORE 8/10
