Classic, slightly chunky Barossa Shiraz. Lots to enjoy.
About the Wine
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 Valley, 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 oak 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 flavour-packed releases like this from the SOE boys, it’s easy to see why there will always be a place for good ol’ Barossa Shiraz.
