Tasting Notes

Pirathon Silver Shiraz 2017 has a deep red core with bright hues. The nose consists of lifted dark fruits that dominate the aromatics (ripe plums, blackberry) with background cedar oak and spice nuances of smoked paprika and fennel. The palate is rich, smooth and powerful made to the stylistic template of Pirathon and the Barossa Valley. Immediate flavours of satsuma plums, boysenberry and dark chocolate are wound together with fine powdery coating tannins providing the structure and flavour persistence of the wine. Oak flavours are present with hints of cedar and spice adding complexity and texture. Balanced and approachable for drinking in its youth or if you prefer cellar over the next decade.


Accolades & Awards

94 Points - Sam Kim Wine Orbit 2019 

"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 Point Rated Mike Bennie Wine Business Monthly

"A super slurper. Juicy with judicious richness and ripeness, soft tannins, dark berry fruit and a coating of liquid spice. This is a pretty darn lush red that is darn pretty. Easy drinking, easy to like."


92 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion

"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."


91 Points - Cameron Douglas, MS 2019

"Very engaging bouquet loaded with familiar varietal signatures of Shiraz - dark spices of pepper cushioned against ripe dark red berries. Some red licorice, sweet meat and clove add depth and complexity. On the palate - dry, weighty, firm and youthful, warm and generous, a core of black and red fruit flavours then moderate yet obvious oak with a toasty and gently char note. Firm tannins, plenty of acidity, balanced and well made. This wine can be enjoyed from today, but perhaps better if decanted and served with food."

Technical

The 2017 growing season started off well with above average rainfall during the winter and spring months. September saw record rainfalls over double the long term average providing plenty of water reserves leading in to summer. Temperatures during summer were moderate allowing a cooler and longer ripening period. March provided favourable harvesting conditions with little rainfall and above average temperatures allowing for all fruit to be picked at optimum flavour and ripeness. The grapes were harvested from the low-yielding vineyards of traditional family growers in the north-western Barossa districts of Greenock, Moppa, Belvedere, Koonunga and Ebenezer. Each vineyard adds its own exclusive dimension to Pirathon Shiraz and combined they produce the ultimate blend.
