The 2021 Pirathon Blue Shiraz crimson red, with aromas of lifted blue fruits with hints of florals, warm spice (cinnamon & nutmeg) framed by attractive nougat oak. Rich in varietal flavours of blood plums, black cherry and blueberry. The palate is fresh and supple with velvety plush tannins providing length and structure. Maturation in a mix of American and French oak barrels allows for a complexity of oak flavours (spice, vanilla, cedar) but by using only seasoned oak doesn’t distract from the balance and fruit purity. Made for immediate enjoyment but will reward medium term cellaring.

Winery & Vintage Info

The 2021 Pirathon Blue Label is an overachieving Barossa Valley Shiraz. This bold Barossa Shiraz shows all the hallmarks of modern Barossa Valley Shiraz.

Pirathon Blue Label Shiraz helps in the challenge of what to pick by being a consistent, high quality and traditional Barossa Shiraz that you can rely on. For that special occasion you simply do not need to think and worry about what to choose but can rely on this for a good quality, hearty Shiraz.

The grapes were harvested from the low-yielding vineyards of traditional family growers in the north-western Barossa districts of Moppa, Belvidere & Koonunga. Each vineyard adds its own exclusive dimension to Pirathon Shiraz and combined they produce the ultimate blend. The grapes used are grown from traditional Barossa clones first introduced to the region over hundreds of years ago.

Each vineyard was harvested at optimum maturity from mid February and late March. Following harvest, each individual lot of grapes was crushed into a separate open top fermenter. During fermentation, hand pump-overs gently extracted colour and flavour from the grapes. After 7-10 days on skins the fermented grapes were pressed with a traditional press. The wines were then filled to new and seasoned French, Hungarian and American oak hogsheads for maturation for 24 months before each lot of wine was racked from the barrel and carefully blended. The wine was bottled without fining, ensuring the true expression of the vineyards in the bottle. Vegan friendly. Winery Notes
