    Established in 2000, the award-winning Sons of Eden winery in the Barossa valley in South Australia is crafting wines of unquestionable quality, from the vineyard right through to the bottle.  The Sons’, Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham, focus on producing world class wines with minimal intervention.  All wines from this small-batch winery have a strong sense of individuality.

    The Rhône style blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre (GSM) is something of an Australian speciality and in the hands of the Sons of Eden winemakers it expresses its full potential.  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.

    Deep crimson in colour this wine is bursting with ripe cherry, blackcurrants and complex five-spice aromas.  It’s smooth, rich and round on the palate with a long, fresh, complex finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
