Sons of Eden ‘Marschall’ Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 14-Jun-2018
Dark, deep, impenetrable black-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly presented with very refined and elegant aromas of ripe blackberry fruit along with sweet black pepper and a hint of eucalyptus, and gentle notes of plums, liquorice and spices. The aromatics are harmoniously interwoven. Full-bodied, the palate has a deep and intense heart with a taut core, showing softly sweet flavours of blackberry fruit with black pepper and subtle notes of plums and herbs. The palate is elegantly proportioned with plenty of fine-grained tannin extraction underlining the flavours. This has good linearity and drive, carrying to an elegant, softly rich finish. This is an elegantly proportioned and refined, but rich Shiraz with blackberry fruit, black pepper and plums with fine tannin extract and linearity. A tribute to Barossa Valley vigneron David Marschall with vineyards in Tanunda and Ebenezer. Shiraz frut from Tanunda, Ebenezer, Seppeltsfiels and Light Pass, vines 12-60 y.o., fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine on skins 15-26 days and matured 15 months in new and seasoned oak hogsheads. 3,000 dozen made. 18.0/20 Jun 2018 RRP $34.99
