Brave Souls is the creation of young winemaker Julia Weirich, in collaboration with Simon Cowham and Corey Ryan of Sons of Eden. The name is inspired by the story of the famous Admella shipwreck of 1859 and spotlights the remarkable accounts of those characters who risked their lives to help the survivors. Iconic Australian artist Bruce Goold generously agreed to visualise the tales of these Brave Souls for the project’s labels. Read More
Brave Souls Barossa Shiraz 2020
An interesting little collaboration here between German-born winemaker Julia Weirich and the team behind Sons of Eden, with the SOE stamp writ large. Deeply coloured, it is a generous upfront Barossan expression with luscious fruit and sweet toasted coconut scented oak. It’s made to impress and it does a good job at that. The full-bodied palate then shows rich liqueur cherry and jammy fruits, and has retained good shape before old oak and supple tannins come through on the finish. An honest Barossa red at a good price.
Rating: 90 Points
