    Established in 2000, Sons of Eden is intimately involved in all aspects of crafting wines of unquestionable quality, from the vineyard right through to the bottle. Varieties that the Barossa produces to a world standard are hand-picked from 30 unique vineyard sites and handled through Sons of Eden’s minimal intervention small-batch winery. As a result, the wines have a strong sense of individuality. With a combined 50 Barossa vintages amassed between the Sons’, Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham, their focus on crafting world class wines is uncompromising.

    Stauros is a Mourvedre made from a unique old vine single vineyard and released only in years of exemplary quality. The vineyard site, in the northern Barossa Valley, is set on ancient soils that have been home to naturally occurring, but rare, stone crosses known as Staurolite. This mineral takes its name from the Greek word stauros, referring to cross.

    Dark and engaging yet refined and stylish, this glorious rendition of the variety shows blackcurrant, spiced plum, thyme, cake spice and roasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a sumptuous palate that is wonderfully weighted and firmly structured by fine, chalky tannins. The wine is up front and flavoursome with velvety mouthfeel, finishing persistent and expansive. - Wine Orbit NZ, 96 Points
