About This Wine
Aromas of blue and black fruit, spice and a finy glossy palate packed with freshness on the palate. Cherries, black pepper and a little earthiness finish off the lengthy palate.
Bugalugs Shiraz is made using traditional winemaking techniques, and is the result of a barrel selection of eight parcels originally destined for Tim’s two elite Barossa Shiraz releases. From vineyards that are up to 100 years old, this wine is matured in predominantly older (French) oak for between 6-12 months before bottling.

Barossa Valley Wine
The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.
A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.
Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
