Sons Of Eden Marschall Shiraz 2018

Sons Of Eden Marschall Shiraz 2018

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%

The 2018 Sons Of Eden Marschall is made as a modern interpretation of the classic Barossa style; opening with lovely lifted ripe blueberry and red licorice notes on the nose. The palate is vibrant, juicy and fresh, while offering the depth, fruit-weight and oak you'd expect in a high-quality Barossa Shiraz. A Shiraz that offers sensational value drinking in its youth, this is likely to only get better over the coming decade.

"96 Points. An unashamed full-bodied shiraz that has perfect balance, rare beast indeed. Blackberry, satsuma plum and polished cherries have unseen tannins and oak embedded in their core. This really is an exceptional wine, the one criticism the extensive print on the label remaining unreadable, even with a magnifying glass with an inbuilt torch. 14.5% alc"- James Halliday, Top Value Wines, Halliday Magazine Feb/ March 2020.

"95 Points. This is gorgeously fragrant on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blackberry, floral, subtle spice and toasted nut characters, leading to a plump palate that is beautifully rounded and impressively weighted. It is up front and delectable with excellent fruit intensity, finishing long and delicious."- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.

Barossa Valley
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: A variety of fermentation techniques were utilized, 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 malolactic fermentation and maturation.

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.
