Barossa, South Australia.
2018 Brave Souls The Whaler Shiraz Barossa Valley – 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. Iconic Australian artist Bruce Goold generously agreed to visualise the tales of these Brave Souls for the project’s labels.
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.
