FIVE STARS 96/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
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.
The winery writes "Deep garnet in colour, an alluring mix of blackberry, red licorice and spiced plum aromas. The palate is fresh and vibrant, rounded and fleshy. A modern styled Barossa Valley Shiraz, which is delicious drinking now that will mature well in the medium term."
Sam Kim writes "Rich blackberry together with spicy oak, olive, clove and a touch of cocoa on the nose, it’s concentrated and weighty with plush texture and silky tannins. Mouthfilling and deliciously long, offering gorgeous drinking."
