About

Top quality grapes are sourced from several vineyards in North-western Barosssa, this part of the Barossa is regarded as one of the finest districts for high quality wine. Sub regions include Greenock, Moppa, Belvidere, Koonunga, Ebenezer. Higher altitude, gullies, hills, slopes, and undulations provide different topographies, microclimates and individualistic parcels of grapes with unique flavours and characters from each site. 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.
