About
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.

About Sons of Eden

Sons of Eden is a partnership between experienced winemaker (Corey Ryan) and viticulturist (Simon Cowham) who both “learnt and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley”. The boys have successfully grown their brand with a suite of full-flavoured but well-proportioned Barossa and Eden Valley wines - predominantly reds - that have gained impressive critical acclaim. 

The wines are built on classic Barossan varieties and blends, but with a modern elegance that makes the wines simultaneously approachable and cellar-worthy. With Cowham's vineyard resources and Ryan's winemaking prowess, Sons of Eden has become one of the best value producers in Australia.

The Wine Front

"Dark cherry, blackberry, toast, nougat and dried mint, a bit of spice too. Full bodied, savoury and toasty, a bit of grip and grain here, sage and dill perfume, flashes of red fruits in with the black, and a solid chocolaty finish. Classic, slightly chunky Barossa Shiraz. Lots to enjoy." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From the Producer

A story that has intrigued us for years is the fable of the legendary founders of Ancient Rome, Romulus and Remus. These twins were abandoned at birth and reared by a she-wolf. Romulus murdered his twin in a fit of rage over the naming of Rome, the city which both had built. Legend presents Romulus as the stronger, more powerful of the brothers, while Remus was more refined, focussed and elegant. We believe the twins’ characterise the distinctive and unique flavours and attributes of Shiraz from the twin valleys - the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.
