In a nutshell: A rich, full-bodied and balanced classic Barossa Shiraz from South Australia.
The lowdown: Made by the small and highly regarded Sons of Eden Winery this wine was named after David Marschall who was responsible for many of the old treasured vineyards which gave the Barossa the reputation it enjoys today. It has rich and intense aromas of ripe berry compote with subtle notes of violets and dried herb aromas.
When to drink: A modern, polished and smooth wine that's only made in limited quantities. It'll make a good partner to lamb, or beef curries.
Sons of Eden, based in the heart of South Australia's Eden Valley north east of Adelaide has a simple philosophy; to produce wines with flavour and personality from vineyards of unique character within the world class Barossa region.
Sons of Eden takes its name from the two partners, Winemaker Corey Ryan and Viticulturist Simon Cowham, who both learned and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley.
Sons of Eden specialises in varieties that the Barossa produces to the highest standard. Varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre from the Barossa Valley and Riesling from the Eden Valley.
Controlling the management and operation of the vineyards as well as implementing a blend of traditional and modern winemaking approaches has meant Sons of Eden is able to consistently craft wines of great quality.
