Sons of Eden has taken its name from the two partners, Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham, who both learnt and refined their crafts over the years in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley. Their passion is dedicated to crafting wines of unquestionable quality from the grapes of some of the Barossa's most treasured vineyards. After carefully selecting unique sites, Sons of Eden is able to take full control of the process from the vineyard to the bottle resulting in wines with a sense of individuality and provenance.
The traditional home for Sagrantino is a short distance north of Rome in the Umbria wine region of central Italy. For centuries Sagrantino has been used by the Roman Catholic Church as a sacramental wine during its Vatican Mass.
Sagrantino is deeply coloured and is one of the most tannic grape varieties, despite generally being a medium bodied wine the plumage of tannin promotes the mouthfeel. The exotic red cherry, dried herb, and smoky blue-fruits typify the aroma and flavours of Sagrantino.
