Teusner "Bilmore" Shiraz 2018, Barossa Valley 95 Halliday
A master Shiraz from Kym Teusner, carrying a gold medal from Halliday and aptly named after an alter ego of the grower behind this Shiraz.
By day a shy retiring type, who transforms when he gets his party boots on into Roger Bilmore. Check the label in the dark, it glows red as a nod to change.
Back to the wine, massive score from Halliday "The flavours pop up like the plastic clowns at the Easter Show, either to be shot or stunned and lie flat at the end of the moving belt. There is a persistent tune with spicy/savoury/preserve flavours that works very well for me..."
