Brave Souls is the creation of young winemaker Julia Weirich, in collaboration with Simon Cowham and Corey Ryan of Sons of Eden.

German in heritage but gypsy at heart, she has worked all over the world, honing her skills in wineries including Bass Phillip in Australia, Yealands in New Zealand, Le Grappin in Burgundy and Mulderbosch in South Africa. Upon her return to Australia, Julia set upon a plan to make wine for herself. Having known her for some time, Simon & Corey, the well-known dynamic team behind Sons of Eden, stepped in to help Julia realise this great adventure in the Barossa Valley.

The name, Brave Souls, 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.

The colour of the wine is best described as pale straw with green hues. Vibrant aromas of lemon and lime citrus fruit accompanied with complex hints of sweet lemon blossom. Pronounced citrus notes supported with an enduring but well balanced mineral line, extending the length of the palate. This wine concludes with a long and fine dry finish. - James Halliday, April 2018, 95 Points, on the 2017 Vintage
