Sons of Eden
Sons of Eden takes its name from the two talented folk; Winemaker Corey Ryan and Viticulturist Simon Cowham, who both learnt and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley.



Their simple philosophy of producing world class wines with flavour and personality from vineyards of unique character (all within the Barossa region) has been a successful one, with high praise from critics and punters alike since their first releases, some years ago.



The stable of wine include ever impressive 'Remus' and 'Romulus' Shiraz' as well as the undeniably high quality and great value 'Kennedy' GSM and 'Freya' Riesling.



"...it comes as no surprise to find that the estate-grown wines are of outstanding quality."

5 stars, James Halliday Wine Companion
Eden Valley
Eden Valley is a cool climate wine region between 400 and 600m up the Barossa range, to the east of the warmer Barossa Valley. It is of a similar size to Barossa Valley, but given the altitude and cooler climate, Eden Valley is reknowned for producing high quality Riesling and Shiraz. Due to its cool climate, small portions of cooler Eden Valley fruit are often blended with 'sister' wines from the Barossa Valley.



The cooler climate provides optimum conditions for long, slow ripening of the grapes, which generally retain acidity and developing complex flavours on the vine. The townships sub regions include Keyneton in the east, Truro in the north and Mt Pleasant in the south and High Eden, located even higher up the Barossa Ranges, with even cooler temperatures.



The soils of the region is generally nutrient poor yellow podzolic/sandy & pink quartz soils over decomposed (gneiss) granite. With its rocky outcrop, which extends to the soild, most irrigation is provided by dams, and most vineyards plant their vines close together. When compared to Clare Valley, Eden Valley is slightly higher in altitude and a little cooler, though has similar sunshine hours, but lower levels of continentality.

This is an irresistibly delicious blend (including 4% tempranillo) with lifted aromas of blackberry, game, clove, nutmeg and cocoa on the nose. The palate is full, plump and velvety, displaying excellent fruit power and intensity, finishing superbly long and delightfully smooth. At its best: 2018 to 2027.
