FIVE STARS 96/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
96 POINTS | James Suckling
94 POINTS | Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
Sons of Eden co-owners, winemaker Corey Ryan ( who “cut his teeth” as winemaker at Henschke for 10 years) and Simon Cowham (ex-viticulturist at Yalumba) can do no wrong. They were awarded the Trophy for Most Successful Exhibitor Medium Producer at the 2017 Barossa Wine Show - the 3rd time it has achieved this award in the last 6 years and a testament to the high level of consistency throughout their portfolio.
With two 96pt reviews under its belt, the Sons of Eden Freya Riesling is clearly something special. Vinted from the excellent 2020 vintage, this riesling offers fragrant aromas of green apple, lime peel and white flowers ont he nose, with plenty of zippy acidity on the palate. The elegance of this wine well belies its humble sub $30 case price. Go long.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Showing a great degree of poise and elegance, it’s fragrant with green apple, lime peel and white floral aromas, combined with a brilliantly focused palate displaying linear mouthfeel and stunning persistency. Wonderfully composed and structured for a gracious development."
