Pirathon is an ancient word for pinnacle and Shiraz is the pinnacle grape of  the Barossa and that the north-western Barossa is the pinnacle sub-appellation for Shiraz.

Pirathon Shiraz is a full bodied wine encompassing the great flavour, texture and structure  of the north-western Barossa. Higher altitude, gullies, hills, slopes, and undulations  provide different topographies, microclimates and individualistic parcels of grapes with  unique flavours and characters from their own site.

Grapes for Pirathon are grown by dedicated high quality growers in the Greenock, Moppa,  Belvedere, Stonewell, Seppeltsfield, Koonunga and Ebenezer districts of the north-western Barossa. Many of these growers’ families have been growing grapes here for generations.

The grapes for Pirathon Shiraz are traditionally handcrafted in open top fermenters and basket  pressed before maturing in barrel. Each vineyard adds its own exclusive dimension to Pirathon  Shiraz and combined they produce the ultimate blend.

Pirathon Shiraz showcases and celebrates the pinnacle north-western Barossa region and pinnacle  Barossa grape with a complex and distinguished wine

“Totally classic Barossa, a mix of North and Western subregions, a range of microclimates that deliver big, rich fruit. The resulting juices also offer attractive aromatic lift above the obvious impressions of traditional oak maturation, which impacts the start but still allows that fruit to keep powering through. Plump generous, steady Barossa shiraz that hangs your senses and leaves you without any doubts about where you’ve been” – 94 Points & Top 100 Wines Tony Love
