Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​Pirathon Shiraz 2015 is dark purple-black in colour. The inviting boquet is uplifting and indicative of a complex wine with blackberry, perfume, spice, chocolate and a touch of classy oak. The full-bodied palate is rich and mouthfilling. It is amazingly well structured which adds a defined framework to the ripe dark fruits. There are background oak barrel characters that complement the bright fruit flavours. Solid but fine natural tannins add a pleasing dryness to support the intense fruit. Overall, this Shiraz is of impeccable balance with the fruit, tannin and oak all working in unison together to provide harmony and complexity. A very lengthy finish completes this powerful and solid wine. Pirathon is a paramount expression of north-western Barossa Shiraz that will reward time in the cellar for a decade."
94/100 Tony Love’s ‘Top 100 Wines’ The Advertiser, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Totally classic Barossa, a mix of North and Western subregions, a range of microclimates that deliver big, rich fruit. The resulting juices also offer attractive aromatic lift above the obvious impressions of traditional oak maturation, which impacts the start but still allows that fruit to keep powering through. Plump generous, steady Barossa shiraz that hangs your senses and leaves you without any doubts about where you’ve been.”
93/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion (2015 Vintage)
"Pirathon is about showcasing shiraz, specifically the north-western part of the Barossa with its varied landscape. Laden with intense dark fruit all plums and cherries sprinkled with dark chocolate, star anise with cedary oak making its mark. Full-bodied, powerful tannins and, as always, a spot-on price."
92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, May 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Rich dark chocolaty wine laced with mint, dark berries, something meaty and saline, lush ripe tannin, and a beefy finish of excellent length, the tannin cleaning it up nicely to close. Great value Barossa Shiraz."
90/100 Toni Paterson, The Real Review, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“Lovers of full-bodied red wine will be astounded by the quality of this wine, considering its affordable price. Full-bodied and chocolately, with plums and blackberry fruit, it is undoubtedly richly-flavoured, however, there is also an appealing liveliness and freshness to the palate. Subtle crushed herbs filter through the wine though sit in harmony with the fruit, adding complexity and interest. Great value ”
