Sons of Eden awarded two Best in Show accolades at the 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards

Sons of Eden has won two coveted ‘Best in Show’ awards at the 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) for wines from each of the Barossa’s two valleys; Eden Valley and Barossa Valley.

The ROMULUS old vine Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019 and REMUS old vine Eden Valley Shiraz 2019 both scored 97 points and a Platinum Medal before going on to win Best in Show.

In its 19th year, the 2022 DWWA is judged by top wine experts from across the globe, and is trusted internationally for its rigorous judging process. 

After a record-breaking year for wines tasted in 2021 the record was topped again this year with 18,244 wines judged from 54 countries.

Awarded to just 50 wines, this year’s Best in Show winners represent only 0.27% of the total wines tasted, and of the competitions top 50 wines six came from Australia.

The other highlight at the Awards was a Gold Medal to the ZEPHYRUS Barossa Shiraz 2020, a blend of both Eden Valley and Barossa Valley fruit.

The Zephyrus 2020 is currently available and the ROMULUS 2019 and REMUS 2019 will be released in early 2023.
