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.”
The name Pirathon is an ancient term meaning Pinnacle, and the aim of winemaker Troy Kalleske wine is to showcase Barossa’s pinnacle Shiraz sub districts located in North Western Barossa - Greenock, Moppa, Belvedere, Stonewell, Seppeltsfield, Koonunga and Ebenezer. Each sub districts terrior contributing it’s own dimension to the final wine. The parcels of fruit are kept separate during the winemaking process with maturation in a combination of new and seasoned American, French, Russian and Hungarian oak hogsheads for 24 months. The wine is then bottled without fining or filtration
'an up and coming superstar estate that merits considerable attention”
- Robert Parker
Outstanding black crimson purple colour, totally opaque with good cling to the wall. Perfumed top note blackberry, liquorice, confectionary and violets, showing strong varietal character. The structure is more refined than that of the '05 vintage. Flavours of vanilla, black pepper and blackberry are supported by fine dryish tannins over a mocha background. Aftertaste of vanilla and black pepper.
