Kalleske Shiraz Pirathon

Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Is deep magenta-black with purple hues. The bouquet is lifted with concentrated aromas of black plum, brambly fruit, chocolate, figs, fruit cake, kirsch and toasty oak with cardamom and clove spice. The palate is very generous, big, full-bodied and richly flavoured with complex upfront ripe dark fruits. This intense fruit is supported by apparent but not intrusive oak. The wine has a robust structure with natural fine chalky tannins and a true spine of acidity holding it together.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Pirathon Shiraz 2011 is deep purple-black in color. The bouquet indicates a serious wine with enticing aromas of dark plum, cherry, chocolate, wild berry, perfume and spice. The wine is full-bodied and mouth-filling with dark red and black fruits, a chewy texture, integrated powdery tannins and a layered structure. The length is very generous and completes a flavorsome well-balanced wine with fruit, oak and tannins in harmony.
