Double Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2020
Gold Medal – Global Syrah Masters 2020

Pirathon produce a range of full bodied Barossa Shiraz and that's all they do, and they do it very well. They are Shiraz specialists. The cost of their wines have taken a significant leap recently but we have managed to some of this at the previous cost (it would now be well over $30.00) So get in!

Pirathon Silver Label (previously known as Pirathon Shiraz) has won many awards throughout the years and the 2018 vintage maintains that level of premium consistency. Grapes were carefully selected and aged in new and seasoned oak barrels before carefully blended. The resulting wine is plump, rich and full-bodied. It is so generously flavoured with complex ripe dark fruits.

Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Aromas are at once complex, savoury oak flavours of cloves, toast and warm spices intertwined with black fruits and a sarsaparilla like lift. ​A rich and inviting palate, upfront dark fruits in the blood plum and blackberry mould meld around assertive ripe tannins. With air, savoury characters come to the fore with black olive tapenade, nutmeg and cured Barossa meats. Oak maturation is noticeable giving clear structural and textual elements with a long and expressive flavour profile that will continue to evolve with careful cellaring."

93/100 Jeni Port,, December 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Another solid, well-built Barossa shiraz where the winemaker lets rip with Barossa power, but also brings forth a degree of elegance. The latter is delivered through lively red and black fruits with dried raspberry, dark plum and blackberry that lift the wine contributing an impressive fragrant complexity. Oak is on view but balanced with sweet vanillin, warm toasty notes. Tannins are sturdy but well-resolved and like the 2017 shiraz, alcohol is on the generous side hitting the scales at 15%. It carries it well.

This is the bold, generous expression of Barossa shiraz that many of us love. It is of a style to be sure but the quality and intensity of fruit – definitely the hero here – lifts it well above the average."

Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"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."

92/100 (2017 Vintage)
"An awful lot of dense, very ripe and chocolate raspberry mud cake flavour. Barossa flavour concentrated. Matured in 20% new oak, though you’d guess higher than that. It’s so chocolatey and dense, which is super appealing. Maybe too warm, but that flavour per glass ratio is very high. Well worth it. Best drinking: mid term drinking, now to eight years plus."
