Pirathon Shiraz 2019


Now dubbed Silver Label, but still a great value, cracking and delicious Barossa red, from a range of sub-regions, that has been such a crowd-pleaser. Maturation is for a year and a half in a combination of American, French and Hungarian oak, some of which is new. An opaque, near black hue, the nose exhibits notes of chocolate, cassis, black fruits, warm earth, dried herbs, axle grease (in the most positive way), espresso, a smoky note and blackberries. Real intensity on the palate follows with noticeable grip and concentration supported by fine, firm tannins and serious length. This will provide pleasure for a good ten to fifteen years.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
