Tim Smith Barossa Bugalugs Shiraz

Tim Smith Bugalugs Shiraz 2019

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%
Tim Smith has long been considered one of the Barossa Valley's finest winemakers, with a focus on showcasing the region's time proven varietals, namely; Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro. This 2019 Tim Smith Bugalugs Shiraz is another super impressive offering from one of the Barossa's leading red wine makers.

Bottled earlier than the Tim Smith Estate Shiraz, this was aged primarily in older American and French oak. The result is an utterly delicious, approachable Barossa Shiraz with delicious fruit vibrancy, balance and an all round excellent drink - particularly at this ripping price.

Review of the 2018 vintage included below;

"Such juiciness with a bit more energy is how I’m seeing many 2018 Barossa reds. Perfumed and juicy, almost an Earl Grey tea thing happening, black and red fruits, subtle vanilla oak. Medium bodied, fleshy and juicy cherry/berry flavour, soft powdery tannin, balanced acidity, and a good finish. Fun, easy-going, and top drinking. 92 Points Tasted : Jul19. 14% alc. $28. Screwcap Drink: 2019 - 2026" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

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.
