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. 

‘Romulus & Remus are two Marvellous expressions of Shiraz from the outstanding 2012 vintage.’

Sourced from 80 plus year old very low yielding vines Romulus was matured in predominately American oak hogsheads for 20 months. Magnificent colour displaying an impenetrable inky black core with a very deep dark purple black tinged hue. Alluring and powerful aromas of dark plum, blackberry and liquorice waft from the glass followed by some black cherries, dark chocolate and spicy vanillin oak showing fabulous intensity. Rich opulently textured flavours fill every crevasse of the palate with ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark chocolate and dark plum the dominate forces at play over a background of toasty vanillin oak and spice. Velvet smooth perfectly integrated tannins. Sumptuous and plush with phenomenal depth and persistence the wine finishes with a very long aftertaste of blackberry, dark plum, liquorice, dark chocolate and spicy vanillin oak.
