The 5OS Project Very Old Vine NV 4G Shiraz
Vineyard: Our former 120+ year old vineyard site in McLaren Vale - one of the finest in the region. Winemaking: For those who want to nerd out, Lucas (our talented winemaker) tells me you are tasting 30% new French oak, with the balance made up of roughly an even split of 2-4 year old American and French. The fresher 2018 portion spent 5 months in oak, 2017 - 17 months, 2016 - 29 months, 2015 - 41 months. Go figure! Vegan friendly.
96-points: The Real Review (Huon Hooke) "Vibrantly bright purple colour. Blueberry pie, mulberries and cinnamon - lovely nose. Powerful yet poised. It’s a beautiful, fragrant and cored wine. Ripe fruit with crunchy red cherry acidity guarantees a very long and happy life."
