The 2018 Pirathon Blue Label is an overachieving Barossa Valley Shiraz. This bold Barossa Shiraz has an inviting bouquet with aromas of ripe plum, Christmas cake, fruit compote and chocolate oak. The full-bodied palate is medium-bold with some refined fruit driven flavour.
The Blue Label is an affable weekday quaffer that will satisfy the craving for a deep gusty shiraz that won't knock you for six. This is a solid number to have in the cellar that you can grab with confidence.
Home to some of the oldest grapevines on planet Earth, the Barossa Valley is perhaps Australia’s most renowned wine region. In 1842, German settlers planted vines and the rest is history!
On the red wine front, it’s all about the big reds like Cabernet and Shiraz here - with full bodied Barossa Shiraz being sought out around the world. It is rich, muscular, and super sexy - Aussie ocker with distinctive finesse.
But the Barossa isn’t a one trick pony. In a salute to the region’s rich German heritage, the Eden Valley (which falls within the broader region) produces some of Australia’s finest rieslings - crisp, fresh, but still balanced.
