    Sons of Eden Notus Barossa Valley Grenache 2021

    Grenache sourced from 100+yo vines in Rowland Flat, 90+yo vines in Trial Hill and 60+vines in Tanunda and Vine Vale; 25% whole bunches; matured in old oak for 6 months. Bright ruby with purple flashes in the glass and aromas of finely poised red cherry, red plum and macerated raspberry fruits, cut with gingery spice, floral high tones and all the vibrancy and verve you'd expect from a top-flight grenache. Medium bodied, pure fruit edged with exotic spice, powdery tannin support and a bright line equals a sense of effortless drinkability.

    A rich and rather decadent grenache with plum, orange-peel and nutmeg aromas and flavors. It’s full and layered with lots of beautiful fruit. Flavorful at the end, but fresh, too.

    Ranked #1 of 25 Grenache 2021 from the Barossa Valley The nose is awash with red and blue fruits and sweet baking spice notes. There’s a purity to the nose with its pristine fruit that draws you in. The palate doesn’t let you down. It’s a cushion of raspberries, red cherries and blueberries brimming with intensity. Some fine savoury edges curb the sweetness, balancing the wine. Fine bitter tannins on the finish accompany a warming alcohol glow. Clever winemaking here showcases the fruit, adding nuance where it’s needed.

    It’s the cooling southerly wind, Notus, that does the job here.
    Raspberries and cherries. Sleek and glossy. Sweet-fruited. Minty with liquorice root. Juicy and lip-smacking. White pepper dust at the end of candied chalky tannins. Flavoursome and mouthwatering, shapely and textural. Finishes cool with a gentle Earl Grey tea aftertaste. There’s great freshness and ripeness in this wine. I guess it’s the combination of the Barossa Valley sun and that cooling southerly wind, as the back label explains it. Real pretty, tasty and well-made wine.

    Sons of Eden Notus Barossa Valley Grenache 2021
    The 2021 Notus Grenache (the Greek god of the southerly wind) has seen 25% whole bunches, fermented wild in egg fermenters, hand and foot plunged daily, 20 days on skins and matured for six months in French puncheons. This is ripe and succulent—there’s a real chew and push here in the mouth, with layer upon layer of red fruit held in place by spicy tannin. Polish and seduction in equal measure—not unlike Hugh Grant circa 2001.
