Sons Of Eden Zephyrus shiraz

The Real Review
Dense, glass-staining purple colour. Complex and richly-fruited on first swirl – mixed ripe berries tamed by toasty oak, tapenade and dark chocolate. Loads of moving parts. A compelling proposition, measured ripeness matched beautifully with framework. Essence of Barossa. Nick Butler 03 Mar 2021

Rich, dense and concentrated.

Deep crimson in colour displaying dark cherry, plum and red-spice aromas. The palate is equally attractive, with a rich concentrated and rounded mouthfeel, finishing with vibrancy and freshness. A modern style Barossa Shiraz which will mature beautifully for many years to come.

Each of the fermentations retained varying levels of whole-bunch fruit clusters from 5 to 50%. After 20-25 days on skins each ferment was pressed into a mix of new (35%) and seasoned French oak hogsheads.

After a maturation of 15 months the wine was blended, naturally clarified and bottled without finings or filtration.

96 Points – “Open-fermented and hand-plunged, each fermenter with whole bunch (10% to 35%) inclusion. Matured for 12 months in French hogsheads (35% new) and bottled without fining or filtration. A delicious shiraz, with a juicy mouthfeel, partly due to whole bunch which also invests attractive spicy notes on the finish.” – James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

95 Points – “Rich, lush, spice/pepper and aged leather nose, with dark and cooler red fruit aromatics. The mouthfeel is full and fleshy, with clusters of precision berries dancing on the palate with incredible freshness. Ample soft tannins add structure and balance. A wine that will age for years.” – 95 pts + Gold Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards 2022
