Troy Kalleske burst onto the scene several years ago with his inaugural releases receiving rave reviews from wine critics around the world including influential US critic Robert Parker who lavished praise and near perfect scores on his wines, instantaneously creating a new cult following. Parker commenting on the talented young winemaker “he appears to have a talent for turning out magnificently concentrated, full throttle reds that are indigenous to the top echelon of Southern Australian producers” and “an up and coming superstar estate that merits considerable attention”. Whilst another critic hailed the Kalleske brand as “the most exciting new brand from the Barossa in 20 years”.
A top example of an opulent full bodied Barossa Shiraz.
The Pirathon is an exciting new project for Troy Kalleske with the fruit being sourced from various growers located throughout the North Western Barossa district, rather than from his own vineyards. The wine has been matured for 2 years in a combination of French, Russian, Hungarian and American oak. The variety of oak and vineyard sources adding complexity to the final blend.
Totally opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Lifted nose of violets, perfumed – followed by liquorice allsorts and spice. The palate has excellent weight and mouthfeel. Flavours of liquorice, vanilla, cedar and plum are supported by a touch of confectionary on the back palate and fine grained tannins. Excellent length and depth. Aftertaste of liquorice, vanilla, cedar, plum and spice.
