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.
A rich, very stylish Barossa Shiraz loaded with gorgeous layers of fruit.
Sourced from 60-80 plus year old very low yielding vines Romulus was matured in a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for 20 months. Excellent colour saturation displaying a midnight black core with a deep dark purple black hue. Intense liquorice top notes dominate the nose with ensuing black cherry and dark plum aromas overlaid by smoky cedar, dried meats and a strong blackpepper finish. Full bodied and supplely textured the palate is enriched with opulent flavours of liquorice, ripe black cherries and dark plums. Nuances of dark chocolate, smoky vanillin oak and spicy pepper prevail long into the finish. Superb fruit purity and power with silky smooth perfectly integrated tannins. Very long aftertaste of ripe black cherries, liquorice, dark plums, subtlety smoked vanillin cedar, dried meats and spicy pepper.
Cellar 6-8 years.
