Sons of Eden ‘Zephyrus’ Barossa Shiraz 2016

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 14-Jun-2018
Full, deep, near saturated black-red colour with a little purple on the rim. The nose is tightly bound and concentrated, a little unyielding initially, unveiling ripe blackberry fruit with hints of boysenberries, black plums Asian spices, and nuances of minerals and tar. The aromatics are rich, but restrained at present. Full-bodied, the palate is tight and well-bound with a richly sweet and deeply intense core of ripe blackberry fruit with notes of boysenberries entwined with Asian spices, hints of tar and minerals. The palate grows in richness, sweetness and lusciousness, and the fruit is supported finely balanced, fine-grained powdery tannin extraction. The palate is underlined by stylish power and drive, and carries to a long, black-berried finish. This is a very deep and concentrated, very fine-structured ripe Shiraz with stylishly restrained flavours of blackberries, boysenberries, spices and minerals. Serve with game meat dishes over the next 8-10+ years. Named after the Greek god of the west wind. A blend of 19 parcels, 52% Barossa Valley and 48% Eden Valley, vines 20-60+ y.o., fermented with a portion of whole clusters, the wine spending 20-25 days on skins and aged 15 months in 35% new French oak hogsheads. 1,500 dozen made. 19.0-/20 Jun 2018 RRP $54.99
