Press Review

    Sons of Eden Romulus Shiraz  2017
    Blended from different parts of the Barossa Valley, the 2017 Romulus Old Vine Shiraz is wonderfully aromatic, offering up scents of bay leaf, cracked pepper and boysenberries. It's all framed by the judicious use of French oak, bringing vanilla and mocha notes to the lush, creamy mid-palate of this medium to full-bodied red. Despite the wine's impressive breadth and texture on the palate, it firms up nicely on the finish, ending crisp, silky and long. It's another terrific bottling from partners Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham.

    Sons of Eden Romulus Shiraz  2017
    Two of the three vineyards used for this wine are over 80yo, the third over 60yo. Hand-picked, crushed and destemmed, different cap management protocols, but all are matured in new and used French oak for 18 months. It's an elegant wine, the structure and texture good, but the oak is currently too assertive and needs some years to settle down. The glass is three-quarters full.

    Dark aromatic nose with savoury and jammy notes. Ripe fruit with dominant oak, showing freshness and tension on the palate.
