Sons of Eden has a simple philosophy to produce wines with flavour and personality from vineyards of unique character within the world class Barossa region. Sons of Eden takes its name from the two partners, Winemaker COREY RYAN and Viticulturist SIMON COWHAM, who both learned and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley.
The MARSCHALL is a Shiraz made in a classic Barossan style. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vignerons who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. David Marschall was a man of many talents and in conjunction with growing exceptional fruit was a revered martial artist, actor and demolition expert. His legacy lives on through his vineyards within the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts which make up the backbone of this wine.
This wine is a blend of Shiraz parcels from various blocks from 3 Marschall vineyards in the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts. The Tanunda vineyard provides intense aromatic lift while the Ebenezer vineyards provide a denser fruit core and richness. Blending together provides layers of flavours, together with intruiging complexity, great structure and length of palate. A variety of fermentation techniques were utilised but all involved extended skin contact and daily plunging to gently extract the tannin required for building wine structure. The ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads, both French and American, for maturation. Matured in barrel for 18 months, then naturally clarified, lightly fined and bottled with minimal filtration.
Sourced from three vineyard in the sub-regions of Ebenezer and Tanunda. This is textbook Barossa Shiraz, and you could pay a lot more, for a lot less, or perhaps for a lot more that’s not really necessary. Blackberry, meat, liquorice, spice and a bit of smoky toasty oak. It’s full bodied, but well behaved, with depth and richness, lashings of supple tannin, even acidity, and a thick savoury finish of excellent length. Bang on.
