Sons of Eden Remus Shiraz 3 pack 2019, 2020, 2021 Vertical

$271.00

Three exceptional Eden Valley Old Vine Shiraz vintages to warm up Winter nights or tuck away in the cellar. The Sons of Eden Remus wines are some of the most in-demand wines at Artisans of Barossa, and we have managed to squirrel away a few cases to indulge ourselves in a mid-winter museum release.

2019 ~ Decanter World Wine Awards 'Best in Show' winner in 2022⁠
2020 ~ Decanter World Wine Awards Platinum Award & 97 points in 2023 ⁠
2021 ~ Just released, 95 points, Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion 

"Bright red and dark plummy fruits cut with exotic spice, violet and jasmine top notes, licorice, dark chocolate and Barossa earth. Detail and line are recurring themes in the SoE wines; nothing overblown or over the top, just pure, spicy fruit, a graceful passage across the palate and a distinct regional thumbprint. It’s drinking nicely now but will improve with careful cellaring." Dave Brookes

As with its twin brother, Romulus, this wine exclusively comes from vineyards that are 50+ years of age⁠ and managed sustainably:

~ Central Eden Valley 80+ year-old vines⁠
~ Central Eden Valley 60+ year-old vines⁠
~ Flaxmans Valley 80+ year-old vines

Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open-top fermenters. Selected fermenters had up to 25% whole-bunch clusters added to the destemmed berries. A pre-fermentation cold soak ensured a slow initiation to fermentation, where temperatures were allowed to peak at 27oC before being cooled to 20oC for the remainder of the fermentation. Hand plunged daily allowed for a gentle extraction and helped to prolong the fermentation. After an extended period on skins the ferments were pressed to 50% new French oak hogsheads. Matured and not racked throughout the 18-month oak-maturation period provided for palate weight and texture. Prior to bottling, the wine was naturally clarified and bottled without filtration.
