Pirathon is an ancient word for pinnacle with Shiraz considered to be Barossa’s pinnacle grape variety. Another great vintage in the Barossa winemaker Troy Kalleske sums up 2016 as “… certainly a star vintage with bright intense wines of great flavour intensity and inherent balance.” Sourced from a variety of Barossa’s top sub districts including Greenock, Moppa, Belvedere, Stonewell, Seppeltsfield, Koonunga and Ebenezer the wine was matured for 18 months in a combination of new and seasoned American, French, Russian and Hungarian oak hogsheads.

Nails the blueprint for the perfect $20 Barossa Shiraz.

Fantastic impenetrable inky black core with an equally deep dark purple black hue. Greeting the nose is an intense mix of dark plum, liquorice, black raspberry and blackberry aromas with vanillin oak, traces of fennel and spice ensuing. Opulent and gloriously rich, the palate is classic Barossa Shiraz, saturated with gorgeous dark and blue fruits. Generous plushly textured flavours of dark plum, blackberries, liquorice and black raspberries hover over background elements of vanillin oak and spice. Superb purity and vibrancy with seamlessly integrated velvet smooth tannins. Great power finishing with a long succulent aftertaste of dark plums, liquorice, blackberries, traces of black raspberries, vanillin cedar and spice.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Alc. 14.5%
