Tim Smith Bugalugs Grenache 2022 (6 Bottles) Barossa Valley

$170.00 GST Included


Unoaked. Vineyard planted in early 70’s. Slight chill. Afternoons, leading into sunsets…

Black and red fruit meet right in the middle in this old vine regional Barossa Grenache. Black cherries, ripe raspberries and two tone mulberries, you know the ones. Subtle bay leaf and dried sage are followed by cassia bark and wet coffee grinds. There is a soft licorice on the palate with good density of fruit, perky acidity and enough stuffing for any red wine drinker. A wine for slow cooked meaty things like casseroles, stews and one pot wonders. Less fuss and more time to sit and enjoy your wine. – Shanteh Wale



About Tim Smith Wines

Tim Smith Wines was established concurrent to a 20+ year winemaking career working for some of the best Barossa Valley based wine producers, as well as numerous overseas vintages in France, Portugal, and New Zealand. These producers include in the Barossa; Yalumba, St Hallett, Charles Melton, Chateau Tanunda. In McLaren Vale; Tatachilla. In France; Chapoutier, Gabriel Meffre and Domaine du Mandeville. In Portugal: Cortes de Cima and Azamor. In New Zealand; Nautilus.

Born in a ‘light bulb moment’ on a study tour to France’s Rhone Valley, Tim Smith Wines was established in 2001 with our first vintage in 2002.

We are still unashamedly heavily influenced by the wines of the Rhone Valley, but with a very healthy respect for our regional Barossa wine style. We see no point in trying to reinvent the wheel when the wine styles and regionality we enjoy in the Barossa has been around for nearly 180 years; the region must be doing something right. However-the wine geek in me cant help tinkering and responding to our different yearly vintage challenges.

Just as importantly-we want to try and demystify a lot of the elitism about wine: it’s a social lubricant after all; it should be fun..
