Pirathon Black Premium Reserve 2016 Shiraz is for those with a love for Shiraz who wants something refined and bold to appreciate the finer details of the wine. The top grapes are picked and reserved for this truly delectable wine which makes it a cut above the typical Shiraz that will certainly make a statement.

Grape lots were carefully selected from the 2016 intake and aged in French and American Oak barrels with no compromise on quality. The resulting wine is finely balanced but bold and full-bodied with juicy dark fruits dominating.

Sub-Regions: Belvidere & Moppa
The grapes were harvested from the low-yielding vineyards of traditional family growers in the north-western Barossa.
Elevation approximately 300-350m.

Growing Season: Vintage 2016 was hot and dry resulting in grapes ripening earlier than average. Winter and Spring rainfall was down by 38% whilst growing season temperatures were up by 3 degrees. Some welcome rain came at the end of January refreshing the vines and giving them good moisture to ripen to maturity.

Yields from 2016 are solid and importantly quality is stunning. 2016 is certainly a star vintage with bright intense wines of great flavour intensity and inherent balance.

Vineyard: The grapes were harvested from the low-yielding vineyards of traditional family growers in the north-western Barossa districts of Belvidere & Moppa. Each vineyard adds its own exclusive dimension to Pirathon Shiraz and combined they produce the ultimate blend.

The grapes for the 2016 Pirathon Black were from De Fazio and Hillview vineyards. These two long term partners of Pirathon's are rich with history and produce some of the finest Shiraz in the world.
