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 50-80 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 inky black colour with a very deep dark red black hue. Intense ripe blackberry and liquorice aromas dominate a powerful nose with notions of black cherry, dark chocolate, vanillin cedar and spice ensuing. Decadently rich and luxurious black fruit flavours of blackberries, liquorice, dark plums and black cherries stream across the palate. A back drop of dark chocolate, faint dried clove, vanillin cedar and spicy pepper lies beneath. A robust yet velvet like tannin structure and carefully threaded, vivid acidity carries the opulent fruit. Intensely concentrated with a very long finish of ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark plums, black cherries, subtle dark chocolate, vanillin oak and spice.
Cellar 8-10 years.
Alc. 14.5%
