Pirathon Shiraz 2012 is dark purple-black in colour. The perfumed boquet is uplifting and indicative of a complex wine with aromas of blackberry, plum, blueberry, rose perfume, chocolate, subtle oak and a hint of spice. The full-bodied palate is rich and mouthfilling with plenty of ripe dark fruits. Background oak barrel characters compliment the bright fruit flavours. There are fine integrated tannins giving the wine a solid structure. This is an extremely balanced Shiraz with fruit, oak and tannin working together to provide harmony. A very lengthy finish completes a powerful but opulent wine. Pirathon is a paramount expression of north-western Barossa Shiraz that will reward time in the cellar for 5-10 years.
This wine is a black black red in color with a tight nose full of concentrated aromas of plums, dark fruits, blackberries, spices and licorice. This is a serious wine, dense, rich, ripe, almost chunky with slabs of fruits, a basket of berries style, with a touch of earth and spice, and some regional dark chocolate. The palate is luscious, chock full of fruit, all black and red berries, plums, spice and some peppery edges, with a lovely velvety mouthfeel, and a full mid palate. It has great length, and finishes with ripe tannins. It has depth, yet it has balance and structure. Great effort, terrific wine. The Auswine panel
