Sons of Eden is a partnership between winemaker Corey Ryan and viticulturist Simon Cowham who both learnt their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley. Their labels Romulus and Remus come from the fable of the legendary founders of Ancient Rome. These twins were abandoned at birth and reared by a she-wolf. Romulus murdered his twin Remus in a fit of rage over the naming of Rome, the city which both had built. Legend presents Romulus (Barossa Valley) as the stronger, more powerful of the brothers, while Remus (Eden Valley) was more refined, focussed and elegant.

Sourced from low yielding 80 year old plus vines the wine was matured for 20 months in American oak. Super saturated inky black purple colour with very deep black purple hue. The nose is filled with ripe dark plum and blackberry aromas followed by some dark chocolate, liquorice and vanillin spice. Dense and rich but far from over the top the palate delivers an opulent mouthfilling flavour profile of dark plum, dark chocolate, liquorice and ripe blackberry with some spicy underlying vanillin oak. Velvet smooth tannins. Superb power and persistence with long dark ripe plum, dark chocolate, liquorice, toasty vanillin oak and spice aftertaste.
