Pirathon Silver Shiraz 2017
I haven't had a look at a Pirathon Shiraz for around ten years I reckon. It's good to be back in the game when this came through the door recently. Track this down too - it's top stuff for 25 bucks.
A clever slice of the Barossa without burning the back pocket. The density is impressive with all the good gear you'd expect. A blend of 20 parcels of fruit from five Barossa sub-regions seeing 18 months in barrel then bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Dense plummy and black fruit, dark chocolate, cedar and baking spices all mingle with ease. It feels like melted chocolate rolling through the mouth such is it's generous and engaging mouth feel. Fine spices are sprinkled atop and just sit long and proudly. A ripper for the money.
