94/100 James Halliday

It's no surprise that Sons of Eden are making waves with these exciting new releases. The winery takes it name from winemakers Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham, who both learnt their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley and this is showstopper Shiraz from one of the hottest winemaking teams in the Barossa. They absolutely nail the modern Barossa style - bringing refinement and subtle textures into focus without losing the plush, opulent fruit weight that the Barossa has built its reputation on. Fruit is sourced from 20-80 year old vines and that heritage shows through loud and clear.
If you're a fan of premium Barossa Shiraz, this is joy in a glass. We are besotted with it. Get involved.
James Halliday writes "An unashamed full-bodied shiraz that has perfect balance, a rare beast indeed. Blackberry, satsuma plum and polished cherries have unseen tannins and oak embedded in their core. This really is an exceptional wine"
Sam Kim writes "This is gorgeously fragrant on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blackberry, floral, subtle spice and toasted nut characters, leading to a plump palate that is beautifully rounded and impressively weighted. It is up front and delectable with excellent fruit intensity, finishing long and delicious."
