2021 Marschall Barossa Valley Shiraz


Dense garnet in colour, with an alluring mix of red-licorice, spiced plum and white chocolate aromas. The palate is rich, rounded and intensely flavoured, finishing with a robust vitality. Delicious drinking upon release but will mature very well for the medium to longer term.

A wide range of fermentation techniques were utilised, but all involved extended skin contact ranging from 15 to 20 days. A cold soak period of up to 5 days occurred before a natural warming to start the fermentation. Upon completion the ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads, for malolactic fermentation and maturation. Matured in barrel with minimal intervention for 14 months, then naturally clarified, and bottled without filtration.

The Marschall Family vineyards are located in the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa Valley. The Tanunda vineyard is grown on sandy soils which typically produce aromatic styled Shiraz, while the rich iron clad soils of Ebenezer produce a more dense fruit core and structured styled wine.

The MARSCHALL is a Barossa Valley Shiraz, named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Valley Vignerons who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. David Marschall was a man of many talents and in conjunction with growing exceptional fruit was a revered martial artist, actor and demolition expert. His legacy lives on through his vineyards within the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts, which make up the backbone of this wine.

91+ Points (Erin Larkin)

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2021 Marschall Shiraz Barossa is routinely an exciting, midweek wine, and if anything, the 2021 season (cool, long, even and without pressure) has amplified all of the attributes already possessed by the wine. This is juicy, spicy, elegant and shaped by silty tannins through the finish. Plenty to like here. Attraction 101. And at under $30, it reconfirms its position as one of Australia's great value Shirazes!


James Suckling

Another top shiraz with lead-pencil and graphite character to the dark fruit. Full-bodied and tight with firm tannins that run the length of the wine. Finishes with lead-pencil shavings. Very unique.

95pts & Top 100

James Halliday

Top 100 Wines of 2022. A smooth, supple medium-bodied wine is the result, with plum and blackberry fruits, integrated oak and tannins. Value-plus.


Decanter (Natalie Earl)

Sons of Eden consistently produce well-loved, high-scoring wines. This Barossa Valley Shiraz is no exception - it's a well-made, sophisticated wine, deep and dark in the glass. It's alive with sweet cassis and cherry drops, intense black fruit, spicy plum and mocha. A real powerhouse of a wine that's elevated by lovely mouthwatering acidity.
