Sam Kim’s thoughts on Pirathon Silver is…

‘Wonderfully fruited and beautifully fragrant, the wine shows black/blueberry, vanilla, cedar and mixed spice aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that’s supple and fleshy. It’s impressively weighted and intense, backed by silky tannins, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2027’

He describes Pirathon Blue as….

‘This is splendidly fruited and inviting on the nose showing dark fruit richness together with seductive notes of anise, roasted hazelnut, cocoa and floral. The palate delivers excellent weight and fruit intensity, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and fine-grained tannins. It’s rich and generous with a lengthy delicious finish’
