FIVE STARS 97/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
95 POINTS | Nick Butler, 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 "This is filled with dark fruit richness, cake spice, cedary oak and dark chocolate characters, wonderfully complemented by outstanding fruit intensity and expansive mouthfeel. Combing awesome fruit purity and seductive complexity with a prolonged velvety finish."
Nick Butler writes "Dense, glass-staining purple colour. Complex and richly-fruited on first swirl - mixed ripe berries tamed by toasty oak, tapenade and dark chocolate. Loads of moving parts. A compelling proposition, measured ripeness matched beautifully with framework. Essence of Barossa."
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."
