FIVE STARS 96/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
96 POINTS | James Halliday
95 POINTS | Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Real Review
Prepare to fall in love. This richly flavoured red showcases those classic bold flavours Shiraz fans adore with added bonus of the softer tannins. It's a belter. Packed in sixes and beautifully presented, this is excellent wine and it deserves your close attention.
Sons of Eden co-owners, Corey Ryan ( who“cut his teeth” as winemaker at Henschke for 10 years) winemaker and Simon Cowham (ex-viticulturist Yalumba) can do no wrong! They were was awarded the Trophy for Most Successful Exhibitor Medium Producer at the 2017 Barossa Wine Show. This is 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.
Sam Kim writes "A blend of 60/40 Eden and Barossa Valley, this splendidly expressed shiraz shows dark fruit richness together with seductive notes of game, warm spice, thyme and cedar on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that is wonderfully weighted and persistent. It is superbly balanced and structured with flowing mouthfeel and silky texture, making it highly enjoyable."
James Halliday writes "Fruit from eight vineyards across the Barossa and Eden valleys, anywhere from 10-60% whole bunches depending on the batch, 3 weeks on skins and all French oak, 45% new. The wine stands out. Spice, fruit, pepper and wood smoke flavours explode onto the palate and ramp the seduction from there. It’s supple and fresh, but the power is obvious. In short, it’s really good."
The winery writes "Deep crimson in colour with a perfumed spicy mix of wild-berry and dried Spring herbs. The palate is richly concentrated with a focused red fruit core surrounded by delicious, supple layered tannins."
