This release of Bugalugs Barossa Shiraz shows all the classic regional characters; the nose shows ripe berry fruit and background cedary oak, while the palate also has dark berry fruit finishing with grainy tannin. Made to drink young, but a nice little rest in a cool cellar for a few years will reward those with the patience.
