I hadn’t heard of Pirathon before so I was thrilled when they reached out to know if I would look at their Shiraz. This Barossan comes in a Silver or Gold and I’m going to talk about the Silver as it’s a more affordable $25 price range.

The bottle is cool with the logo embossed on it (I love that), but the all important bit – the juice inside is worth seeking out. Dark fruits but bright and fresh in flavour with signature Shiraz peppery spice we love but also aromatic spices that reminded me of Christmas cakes of my childhood.

This one definitely comes under the warning of being dangerously drinkable because of it’s whopping 15% alcohol. Might be one to seek out but no doubt if you ask nicely (and pay for shipping) they will send to New Zealand.
