Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came. Partisans and purists of bespoke presentations in Pinot, are quietly advised to pool their pesetas and avail themselves of a case or two Walkerville Pinot Noir, a mere few hundred..

Giovanni Tait mastered the family tradition of coopering wine barrels before migrating to Australia in 1957. He took up work in the Barossa and ultimately settled in for a lengthy engagement at B Seppelts and Sons, where he played a significant role in the vinification and maturation of some of the most memorable vintages in Australian viticulture. Tait's boys grew up to be winemakers, their attention to detail and close relationship with the Barossa's finest growers have earned the highest accolades from the international wine industry press. Generously proportioned yet exquisitely balanced, famously praised, perennially by savant Robert Parker as the most consistently outstanding quality, exceptional value wines from Barossa Valley...

The ancient Romans made no secret that their success was due to a merciless use of power. In furtherance of their aim to sire generations of ruthless warriors and entrepreneurs, they taught their youth the myth of twins who established a city state. Remus was the sophisticated one and Romulus was a brute. Romulus slayed his gentler brother and gave his name to a great empire. Sons of Eden offer both, Remus of Eden Valley, elegant and refined, or the rich and powerful Romulus of Barossa, siblings and adversaries, destined to an eternal rivalry for your favour.

Harvests of old vine Shiraz are assembled, from splendid sites eighty years of age and more, in the premiere viticultural precincts of Moppa and Light Pass. Grapes are all hand picked, destemmed and crushed into small, open top ½ tonnes fermenters. A variety of vinification techniques are employed, unique to each parcel, to create layers of flavour and complexity. Batches are hand plunged daily, for gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. After an extended term on skins, ferments are pressed to a selection of predominately new American oak hogsheads for completion, a course of malolactic and twenty months maturation. Components are assembled and bottled without fitration.
Deep crimson colour. Complex aromas of densely ripe plum, currants and red berry fruits, seasoned by liquorice notes, milled spice and vanilla bean. A powerful and fleshy palate of peppery plums, piquant red berries and oaken spice are framed by a border of fine American oak and supported by a length of persistent, firm, silky tannins.

Sons Of Eden
Sons of Eden work to a simple philosophy, to produce wines with flavour and personality, from vineyards of unique character within the world class Barossa 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. A trained Oenologist and self confessed wine tragic, Ryan lives and breathes winemaking and has amassed a wealth of winemaking experience across Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy and Spain. Most recently, Corey has consulted to several winemaking businesses in Australia and overseas, which have included Villa Maria and McWilliams Wine Group.

Sons Of Eden

As Chief Winemaker for Villa Maria Estates, Ryan was bestowed New Zealand Winemaker of the Year by the Australasian publication Winestate in 2007. He is equally talented at crafting cool climate Pinot Noir as he is signature Barossa styles. It was, however, his time as Winemaker for the iconic Eden Valley producer Henschke that first whet his appetite for Barossa wines that has become his entrenched passion with Sons of Eden. Most comfortable with dirt under his finger nails and living in unison with his treasured vineyards, viticulturalist Simon Cowhams work in crafting wines begins well before the first grapes are crushed.

Having completed his first vintage at the famous Tintara Winery in McLaren Vale in 1990 the passion was well and truly lit. A broad range of roles including sales in UK, clonal selection in Europe and policy development at the Winemakers Federation of Australia eventually led back to the vineyards and cellars of the Barossa.

As Viticulturist for Eden Valley producer Yalumba, Simon relished the opportunity to influence wine styles from the vineyard and set about really understanding the dynamics of vineyard site and its management. Today Cowham manages a large number of Barossa Valley and Eden Valley vineyard sites that grow fruit for not only Sons of Eden but also for some of the most recognised and respected wineries in the Barossa.

Sons Of Eden

Sons of Eden specialises in varieties that the Barossa produces to the highest standard. Varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre from the Barossa Valley and Riesling from the Eden Valley. Controlling the management and operation of the vineyards as well as implementing a blend of traditional and modern winemaking approaches has meant Sons of Eden is able to consistently craft wines of great quality.

The Sons of Eden Seppeltsfield vineyard is situated on a plateau on the north-western edge of the Barossa Valley with views out to the Gulf of St Vincent. A unique feature of this site is the cool westerly wind that originates like clockwork, in the early afternoon from the gulf during spring and the long summer months. This cooling effect lengthens the time for flavour and tannin development producing fruit with refinement and intensity. The Gomersal property is situated on the western edge of the Barossa Valley with an easterly aspect. By Barossa Valley standards this area is warm and dry, but afternoon sea breezes do increase humidity and drops the temperature in most afternoons - particularly during summer. The result is small berries packing heaps of flavour and tannin. This vineyard produces Shiraz for Kennedy GSM.

The Light Pass vineyard is situated on the eastern foothills of the Barossa Valley, giving it elevation above the valley floor. The old vine Shiraz from this property consistently produces fruit with layers of flavour and high colour, the basis of Romulus Shiraz. The old vine Grenache produces small berries, often thought to be a clonal characteristic, and abundant concentration of flavour. While the age of vines on the Sons of Eden Moppa site is not exactly known it is estimated to be be more than 40 years old. Moppa vineyard produces Shiraz for Romulus and Mourvedre for Kennedy GSM.
