Sons of Eden Kennedy Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The team behind Sons of Eden are serious stars in the making and if they aren’t one of the hottest Barossa names in a decades’ time then I will eat my hat. But seriously, young guns with serious intent is what we love here at Cracka and these guys have it in spades.

The heart of this blend is a superb block of 50 year old vines that give quite brilliant complexity and texture underlined by some fleshy Shiraz and brooding Mourvedre. A serious wine for serious contemplation.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep crimson in colour this wine has intense aromas of cherry and plum together with complex spice and anise nuances. The palate displays concentrated ripe red fruit characters together with complementing sweet spice flavours. Soft and velvety tannins persist the length of the palate that finishes with some savoury nuances.

The Kennedy is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Valley Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron’s who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. 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.
