Pirathon Gold Shiraz 2016

The pinnacle of Pirathon’s winemaking with only their best fruit going into this label. Sourced from Moppa and Belivdere, matured in French oak (67% new).

Pirathon, Gold, Shiraz, Barossa Valley, 2016

Dense and dark in the glass, it actually feels heavy to swirl. No shortage of powerful aromas.: Wood, concentrated plum, chocolate, baking spices, thick vanilla bean paste and just fired shotgun cartridge. The palate equally as dense as the colour. Concetrated, syrupy with smoked meats, bittersweet chocolate and blood plum. It’s viscous with large swathes of coffee ground pervasive tannins. The flavour lasts long with a smoky trail. One for the hedonists.

RRP: $99
Alc: 15%
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
