Sons of Eden co-owners, Corey Ryan (who “cut his teeth” as winemaker at Henschke for 10 years) and Simon Cowham (ex-viticulturist Yalumba) can do no wrong.

The Kennedy is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron's who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards,which the Barossa enjoys today. The Grenache fruit is the 'soul' of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo 'Joe' Kennedy who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.
This plush, generously framed wine has become a smash hit with our premium red buyers - so much so that stocks continually sell through no matter how much we buy! It's exciting stuff and you need it in your life.
James Halliday writes " 94pts. It’s svelte and smooth, but it still qualifies as a robust red. It certainly pours on a power of fruit flavour. Blackberry, kirsch, dark leather and anise flavours sweep convincingly through the palate. All guns ablaze. Value and quality in one".
