The 5OS Project Shiraz Touriga 2018
93% MV Shiraz and 7% MV Touriga co fermented in 2t Opens for approx. 2 weeks.
The Touriga is amazing how it sticks its head up throughout all aspects of this wine, it layers in gaminess and dark olives through both the aromatics and palate. It’s a shed wine and wears it well, hint of cured meats and some bbq’d lamb, the later maybe more from the oak than the fruit, the tannins are nice and dusty now and should soften over time albeit it’s a lovely drink now and will remain so for 7-10 years at least.
About The 5OS Project
This is essentially our ‘Home Brand’. We make these wines ourselves and farm out others to mates, with the intention to create a range of wines that have heaps of drinkability but not at the expense of varietal, regional and vintage characteristics. They should also look the part, embracing the talent of the respective artists whilst encouraging them to find their own beat.
