About

Like it's legendary namesake, Romulus is all shoulders and strength. A brooding and powerful Shiraz, he is the personification of all things Barossa. Sourced from two separate vineyards that are 80+ and 85+ years old in the Barossa, this is a textbook example of why this is our most famous wine producing region. In opposition to the finer boned Remus who sees exclusively French oak, Romulus gets a healthy dose of brand new American and takes it in stride. There is a big movement at the moment towards the cooler climate, more elegant side of Shiraz in this country, but with phenomenal releases like this knockout from the SOE boys, it’s easy to see why there will always be a place for the good ol’ Barossa Shiraz.

What it Tastes Like

This is a plush and surprisingly supple Shiraz. A V12 engine wrapped in a fur coat. It rumbles with sweet coco and vanillin oak, the blackberry and chocolate covered boysenberries with a smattering of cracked pepper and clove. Velvety mouthfeel as it oozes along its merry way. Freshness though, which is great to see. A modern feel for a classic wine style. Job done well here.
