Tim Smith was crowned a Baron of the Barossa the other week, which means he now gets to swan around in colourful robes to all the Barossan wine events.
I joke, but it’s a huge honour for any Barossan, and Tim is such a worthy Baron.
For today’s entertainment, the freshly-minted baron has delivered us a guessing game wine too, with this Bugalugs by Tim Smith White 2022, a white blend of unknown ingredients.
I’m thinking there is some Viognier in the mix – apricot and melon and nectarine. Rhone white blend? Some talc in the mix, but otherwise a fleshy basket full of stonefruit, with open flavours and low acid.
A wine of immediacy. Good fresh, fruity drink, though not wildly complex, it overfloweth with fruit fun and surprising intensity.
Best drinking: now. 17/20, 90/100. 13%, $30. Tim Smith Wines website. Would I buy it? I’d share a bottle.
