About Pirathon

Pirathon is an ancient word for pinnacle and we believe 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 basketpressed 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. Pirathon are proud to use screw cap closures for our wine which are at the forefront in an advance in improving the quality of bottled wine.

ReviewsWhat wine critics have to say about our wine.

 

“From seven growers in the north western districts of the Barossa Valley. A densely packed and powerful wine, each lot of grapes separately open-fermented, thence to new and used puncheons from four countries. Deeply coloured and complex, the oak is presently flexing its muscles, and the ripe tannins and the black fruits, dark chocolate and spices are keeping a respectful distance.”

Halliday Wine Companion | Australia 2019 

“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"
