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.
Decadently rich yet controlled possessing sublime length and spellbinding power.
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. Magnificent impenetrable inky black core with a very deep bright dark red black hue. Powerful aromas of ripe blackberry, dark plum and liquorice waft from the glass underscored by smoky vanillin cedar, dried meats and very subtle dried clove with spicy pepper end notes. A huge voluptuously textured palate completely saturates the mouth with decadently rich yet controlled fruit flavours of ripe blackberries, dark plums and liquorice overlaying traces of mocha, spicy vanillin cedar, faint dried clove infusions and light pepper. The length, concentration and richness of this wine are all superb. Such is the density of fruit that it almost has the textural feel of paint and despite a sturdy tannin structure flexing its muscles, they appear virtually velvet like due to the heavy coating of fruit. Concludes with an outstanding power wave of ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark plum, subtle dark chocolate, hints of dried clove and spicy vanillin cedar.
Cellar 8-10 years.
