Its Origins

Pirathon is an ancient word for pinnacle, referring to the north-western Barossa as the pinnacle sub-appellation for Shiraz. Pirathon Shiraz is a full bodied wine encompassing the great flavour, texture and structure of the north-western Barossa. Higher altitude, gullies, hills, slopes, and undulations provide different topographies, microclimates and individualistic parcels of grapes with unique flavours and characters from their own site. Grapes for Pirathon are grown by dedicated high quality growers in the Greenock, Moppa, Belvedere, Stonewell, Seppeltsfield, Koonunga and Ebenezer districts of the north-western Barossa. Many of these growers' families have been growing grapes here for generations. The grapes for Pirathon Shiraz are traditionally handcrafted in open top fermenters and basketpressed before maturing in barrel. Each vineyard adds its own exclusive dimension to Pirathon Shiraz and combined they produce the ultimate blend. Pirathon Shiraz showcases and celebrates the pinnacle north-western Barossa region and pinnacle Barossa grape with a complex and distinguished wine.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"Wonderfully fruited and beautifully fragrant, the wine shows black/blueberry, vanilla, cedar and mixed spice aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that’s supple and fleshy. It’s impressively weighted and intense, backed by silky tannins, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2027. AU$25.00. www.pirathon.com. Oct 2019." Drink 2019 - 2027

92/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, Campbell Mattinson

"100% shiraz. Sweet raspberry, plum, toffee and asphalt flavours move softly through the mouth. It's both fresh and bold, the fruit flavours well complemented by clovey, smoky oak. Warmth on the finish and relative simplicity the only quality constraints." Drink by 2026

92/100 The Real Review, Nick Butler

“Dark cherries, raisins and tapenade, oak is toasty and integrated. A big mouthful of shiraz, riper, primary mulberries and plums emerge, tannins softened, oak providing frame. It's an unapologetic, gluggable taste of the Barossa 20 NOV 2019." 2019 - 2027
