TASTING NOTES:

Deep crimson in colour, the wine shows vibrant and lifted wild berry aromas with complex black pepper and briary herbal nuances on the nose. On the palate, generous and fleshy ripe red berry fruits are layered with subtle herbal notes, enveloped with enduring velvety tannins.

'The medium-bodied palate is a first-up triumph, with a finely woven texture carrying red and black cherries, pepper, spice and herb that would more often come from cool climates.'  96 Points - James Halliday
'Barossa Shiraz. Average vine age is about 20 years. It went into both old and new oak but whether this was American or French oak isn’t specified; presumably it was therefore American. It’s a dry, powerful red wine, intensely clovey, blackberried where it needs to be, infused with graphite and gravel, and littered throughout with gum leaf and a smooth, cream-resin character. The fruit is ripe and sweet but the wine still manages to exude dryness and firmness. Any interesting wine, without doubt. Lots going on. More peppercorn than pepper but there’s certainly a lot more going on here than simple fruit.'  93+ Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

'Very deep, dark red/purple colour with a sweetly floral, slightly jammy fragrance. The wine is full-bodied and strong, with lots of muscle. It's just a trifle astringent at this tender stage. It has potential and will benefit from cellaring.'  4 Stars - Jane Thomson, Herald Sun

ABOUT:

Brave Souls is the creation of young winemaker Julia Weirich, in collaboration with Simon Cowham and Corey Ryan of Sons of Eden. The name is inspired by the story of the famous Admella shipwreck of 1859 and spotlights the remarkable accounts of those characters who risked their lives to help the survivors.
