Sons of Eden have a simple philosophy to produce wines with flavour and personality from vineyards of unique character within the world class Barossa region. Specialising in varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre and Riesling. Sons of Eden takes its name from the two partners, winemakers Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham, who both learnt and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley.
The Kennedy is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron’s who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. The Grenache fruit is the ‘soul’ of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass Vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo ‘Joe’ Kennedy who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.
It's svelte, sweet and smooth, but it still qualifies as a robust red. It certainly pours on a power of fruit flavour. Blackberry, kirsch, dark leather and anise flavours sweep convincingly through the palate. All guns ablaze. Value and quality in one. Rating: 94 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
I tasted through a range of Sons of Eden current/new releases recently and this wine stood out. I tasted them without knowing the asking prices and so I was surprised/delighted to find that this was also about the most affordable of them. Some days you have a win. What I like about this is that it’s both robust and svelte. It tastes of blackberry, kirsch, anise and dark leather and at every point along the flow of the palate it feels convincing.
