The 5OS Project Margaret River Chardonnay 2019

“We’ve been wanting to do a Margaret River Chardonnay for ages, obviously we all love the variety so it seemed in keeping to source some fruit, not to mention ultimately a lot cheaper than drinking Cullen, Leeuwin, Deepwood and Piero on rotation as per the last 10 years around the winery.
Ollie found us a grower who was prepared to peel a few tonnes off his TWE contract for us and we shipped it near frozen the 2900 kms to get it here. Straight to oak, 40% new FO where it fermented for a few weeks on its own, before bottling in Feb 2020.
Hints of Fennel and citrus infuse with a sweet, nougat like character and obvious but nice warm oak.
It’s certainly not in subtle spectrum, it’s super fleshy vibrant and really opens up after 10 or so minutes in the glass. Should age well over the next 5-7 years as well.” – Steve Grimley, Winemaker & Proprietor

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.

Aromatics: Fennel, citrus and a sweet, nougat-like character
Palate: Super fleshy and vivacious, loaded with ripe, soft fruits and tingling acid
Finish: It’ll really open up after 10 minutes in the glass
Cellaring: It should age well over 5-7 years after bottling
