About

Yet another home run from the talented and likeable fellas at Sons of Eden.

In Ancient Greek mythology, Zephyrus was the God of the west wind. The westerly wind is key to the warmer climate of the Barossa, allowing a cool change in the afternoons to extend the ripening period of the fruit. Zephyrus is a blend of fruit from eight different vineyards - four each from the Barossa and Eden Valleys.

As the Sons put it themselves, “The blend of cooler climate Eden Valley Shiraz (39%) and warmer climate Barossa Valley Shiraz (61%) combine beautifully to enhance the palate structure and aromatics.”

It received a glowing review with 97 points from James Halliday and offers a great view of classy South Australian Shiraz, replete with all the richness and depth that the Barossa and Eden Valleys are known for.

What It Tastes Like

97 points. “ A seriously complex and intense wine, combining raw power and finesse on the prodigiously long palate, piano keys from all parts of the keyboard being played from the opening stanza to the aftertaste, sour cherries and dried herbs, licorice and black pepper soprano to the bass of blackberry, in a coruscating display of daring to be different shiraz.”

  • James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
