Sons Of Eden Eurus cabernet sauvignon

Deep crimson in colour, with vibrant aromas of spiced black-olives, cloves and fresh blackcurrants. A rich palate displaying complex brooding characters with a rounded robust mid palate. A wine with lovely grainy tannins, focus and refinement which will mature gracefully for many years to come.  14.5% alc.

The fruit was handpicked and 100% de-stemmed into an open top fermenter, where it remained for 18 days. Naturally fermented and hand plunged daily then pressed to a mix of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads for maturation. Matured in barrel for 20 months with no racking, before being clarified and bottled without filtration.

94 Points, Tyson Stelzer, James Halliday 2022 Australian Wine Companion “Density and definition. Impressive concentration of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, even fresh licourice and touches of menthol, all backed with high cocoa dark chocolate. French oak. Firm, fine, confident tannins direct a long finish. Full and impacting.”

94 Points, Nick Stock for James Suckling “Dry-grown at elevation, this has hit a very attractive band of quality in 2018, with intense roasting herbs and ripe black fruit, as well as tapenade, spice and some sweet tobacco. The silky palate has bold, fleshy depth and a very even, driving build. Drink over the next eight years.  Oct 2021”
