Sons of Eden has deep respect for our fore-bearers who planted these amazing vineyards with three special wines named in tribute to generational growers that passed over their treasures to us to become the current custodians.

Grape Variety:

  • Marschall 2018 - Shiraz 100%
  • |
  • Kennedy 2017 – Grenache 48%, Shiraz 32%, Mourvedre 20%
  • |
  • Pumpa 2018 - Cabernet Sauvignon 87%, Shiraz 13%

Marschall 2018:
A variety of fermentation techniques were utilized, but all involved extended skin contact ranging from 15 to 25 days. A cold soak period of up to 6 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.

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.

Kennedy 2017:
All 3 varieties were hand harvested and fermented separately. To aid colour, tannin and flavour extraction the parcels were fermented warm, with temperatures reaching near 30oC. The Grenache and Mourvedre parcels were macerated on skins for 10-20 days before being pressed straight to seasoned oak hogsheads and puncheons for maturation. These parcels were then barrel maturated for 16 months without racking on full press solids, then naturally clarified, blended and bottled.

Pumpa 2018:
All parcels were individually hand harvested, destemmed and fermented in small 1 and 2 tonne fermenters. A mixture of hand plunging and pumping-over cap management techniques were employed throughout the fermentation. Extended skin-maceration occurred for up to 10 days post dryness before being pressed off and matured in a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads. Matured on full yeast lees for 15 months prior to being assembled, naturally clarified and bottled without finings or filtration.
