The name Pirathon is an ancient term meaning Pinnacle, and the aim of winemaker Troy Kalleske 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

2007 was a drought affected vintage with a warm growing season and one of the driest winters on record. Intermittent summer rainfall refreshed the vines and enabled them to remain remarkably vibrant and take them through to ripening and harvest. The drought conditions reduced yields by about 30% but importantly quality from 2007 was still very good.

A generous red!

Very deep crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Spicy top note followed by plum and violets with perfumed lifted blackberry end notes. Mouthfilling palate – plum, spice and liquorice over a layer of dark chocolate – the palate flavours continue to evolve to reveal stewed cherries, plum and cedar followed by truffle mushroom on the back palate. Fine grained tannins with very long aftertaste.
Cellar 2-3 years (2011-2012)
Alc/Vol: 15.0%
