About

Sons of Eden is another of the new breed of Barossa labels turning the region on its head. They are a partnership between a winemaker (Corey Ryan) and Viticulturist (Simon Cowham) who both "learnt and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley". There are two Shiraz in their ‘Mystical Series’ of wines; Remus and Romulus. These ‘twin’ wines are named after the two brothers who are said to have built Rome. As legend has it, Romulus, the brawnier and stronger of the two (the Barossa Shiraz in this case) killed his more refined, and elegant brother Remus (the Eden Valley equivalent), in a war over the naming of the city. The best of their Eden Valley wines, Remus is sourced from two separate 50+ year old vineyards. With a rigorous fruit selection policy and a healthy whack of new French oak, (Romulus gets the gutsier American oak treatment) this wine is recognised as one of the highest quality examples of premium Shiraz from the region. If you look for only truly exceptional wines that speak emphatically of their terroir, then Remus is as dignified and eloquent an example as you are likely to come across.

What it Tastes Like

Black pepper, sweet toasty cedar dressed to kill. This is long and high-impact Shiraz. Density and power to burn. Sweet inky plums and licorice, long strands of spice-riddled tannin. Top class.
