The blend of cooler climate Eden Valley Shiraz (48%) and warmer climate Barossa Valley Shiraz (52%) combine beautifully to enhance the palate structure and aromatics.
About the Wine
Yet another home run from the clever fellas at Sons of Eden. Lovers of big, bold Barossa Shiraz look no further.
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 (48%) and warmer climate Barossa Valley Shiraz (52%) combine beautifully to enhance the palate structure and aromatics."
A class act South Australian Shiraz that always reviews extremely well, replete with all the richness and depth that the Barossa and Eden Valleys are known for.
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.
