Sons of Eden is one of the Barossa's brightest young wineries, committed to delivering wines with flavour and personality from vineyards throughout this famous wine 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 Sons Of Eden 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.

"94 Points. The sons are winemaker Corey Ryan and viticulturist Simon Cowham, although the roles can easily be reversed. Their red wines always have a velvet-rimmed mouthfeel of luscious fruit brought into line by acidity and classy tannins leading into a fine finish. Price: $30.00 Alcohol: 14.5 % Drink By: 2032 Closure: Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.

Wine Description: Garnet in colour this modern Barossa wine bounces out of the glass with ripe blueberry and red licorice aromas. The palate is fresh, juicy and alive with dark berried fruits, finishing with a textured savoury edge. Delicious drinking now but will mature well for the medium term.

Winemaking: The Marschall Family vineyards are located in the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa Valley. The Tanunda vineyard is grown on sandy soils which typically produce aromatic styled Shiraz, while the rich iron clad soils of Ebenezer produce a more dense fruit core and structured styled wine.

A variety of fermentation techniques were utilised, but all involved extended skin contact ranging from 15 to 25 days. A cold soak period of up to 6 days occurred before a natural warming to start the fermentation. Upon completion the ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads, for malolatic fermentation and maturation. Matured in barrel with minimal intervention for 15 months, then naturally clarified, and bottled without filtration.
