Pirathon Wines 2016 Barossa Valley Silver Shiraz

What a treat! I’ve got a Scarlet & Grace Giftware and Aromas ‘Moonlit Lake’ candle burning and a bottle of Pirathon Wines 2016 Barossa Valley Silver Shiraz cracked open.

A big thanks to Mark & team for sending us over this wine to try. We definitely made it feel at home as soon as it landed on our doorstep!

This Shiraz was dry grown and hand crafted. It spent 18 months in oak (from France, America, Russia and Hungry). The winemaker behind this wine is Troy Kalleske.

This is how our night with this full bodied Shiraz went:

In the glass it’s a deep red plum shade. It has a very vibrant nose – think elegant dark fruit notes sprinkled with enticing spice. In the mouth it’s fresh with dark fruit like plums and blackcurrants laced with oak. It’s acidic across the palate with a little bit of vanilla in the background, and a very fine chalky tannin structure. Go on, treat yourselves!

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Grab a glass of wine and let me know what you think...
