Sons of Eden Kennedy GSM 2009

I've had a look at this wine a few times now and it never fails to impress. I bought it at Chalk n Cheese for $20, and it normally chases a little more.

Layers and layers of flavour continually unwrap themselves and then the delicious spice at the end drags you back for another mouthful.

The fruit is Barossa grown on 50+ year old vines and the blend is made up of 45% Grenache, 40% Shiraz and 15% Mourvedre. The wine was aged for 16 months in French oak.

Dark fruit in the glass with a hint of sweetness on the palate. Raspberry and black fruit characters build up a silky smooth mouthfeel and depth. The longer it sat the greater the flavour profile developed revealing new taste sensations.
The spice was the clincher for me. It's seductive and sexy and begs for another mouthful, leaving a long lasting finish. Man it's good!
No surprises this is sold out - so I recommend you steal from someone who has some!
