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."
SG score 8/10
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
