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.
Grenache 49%, Shiraz 28%, and Mourvedre 23% from quite the diverse range of mainly old vine vineyards. Always a solid performer. Ripe cherry and plum, spicy biscuits, a smattering of dried herbs and grilled meat. It’s supple, dark in fruit, ripe but with an earthy/savoury edge, some raspberry acidity, and a slightly sooty, saline and spicy finish offering flesh and length. Good drinking.
