Teusners Bilmore Shiraz is sourced from vineyards along the western ridge of the Valley floor…an area stretching south of Seppeltsfield Road, around the back of the golf club at Rowland Flat and then on through the parish of Gomersal that overlooks the southern township of Lyndoch. Shiraz grown in these parts produces richly flavoured wines with soft, round mouth feel and plenty of delicious savoury characters. Seeking to place a pure expression of Shiraz flavour center stage here, they have gone easy on the oak using only older, seasoned barrels for the job of maturing for around 12 months. They named this wine in honour of one of their favorite characters, the legendary ‘Roger Bilmore’!
94 Points - Tyson Stelzer, winecompanion.com.au
"95 / 5% shiraz/ cabernet sauvignon; 10–20yo vines; matured 12 months in old French oak hogsheads. I've long marvelled at Kym Teusner's superpower of delivering glossy density with vitality and accuracy. Few in the Barossa do this with such consistency across every varietal and price point. Particularly noble at the value end of the pool. The depth and just-picked freshness of sweet black fruits that he has conjured here is not often seen without spending double the dollars. Long, fine-grained, jubilant and irresistible. Yes, please."
