Bilmore is Kym Teusner's homage to the grapegrowers of the Barossa. The quiet heroes of the wine world who deliver the fruit to make great wines great.

This Shiraz is everything good about Barossan reds too, overflowing with luscious flavour in true South Aussie Shiraz style.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionThe 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, even if left field.

How was it made?

"Our Bilmore Shiraz is sourced primarily 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…the trademark of wines from this part of the Barossa Valley.
We’ve named this wine in honour of one of our favorite characters, the legendary ‘Roger Bilmore’!

Whilst I’m sworn to secrecy and can’t reveal his true identity, I can tell you that by day, John (pictured above, Oral-B dentist, toothbrush in hand style) is a humble Barossa grape grower, a hard working type and a man of few words. The quality of his grapes usually does John’s bidding. But from time to time, under cover of night and with the aid of more than a few glasses of Barossa Shiraz, John shyly retreats and his alter ego Roger Bilmore steps up to the plate to show an entirely different face!

Get some Roger into you!” Kym Teusner

Who made it?

Winemaker Kym Teusner is one of the Barossa’s young Turks - but with a twist. While many of his generation are making massively rich and ripe reds - often at very high prices - Teusner has aimed to balance the natural power of old vine Barossa material with careful, reductive winemaking that produces wines of wonderful elegance and complexity. His wines are about as close as the Barossa gets to reminding the drinker of the Southern Rhone, and their value for money is quite astounding. Teusner Wines came into being late in 2001 when Kym Teusner, then at Torbreck, witnessed a conversation between his wife’s uncle and his brother. They were discussing the viability of an old Grenache vineyard, planted in the Northern Barossa Valley by their grandfather. The low yields and low prices being paid by the ‘big boys’ meant the vineyard was running at a loss and facing certain destruction. Kym was loathed to hear this and approached his brother-in-law, now business partner, Michael Page, to see if they could scratch together enough cash to keep these gnarled old vines in the ground. In that first year, they raised enough capital for about a quarter of the fruit from that vineyard, but this was enough for the Riebke brothers to stall their plans for these precious old vines. They were aware of a few other old blocks from which fruit could be sourced, if required, and made their first release with 165 cases of 2002 Joshua. In addition to this, about eight hogsheads of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz were put aside, destined to be released around 24 months later as Avatar. From here the range of wines have expanded significantly. Today the range receives constant accolades.

Let’s face it - we all have very different wine tastes and not every wine you find will be right for you right now. That’s why I’ve put together a little selection of my favourites - wines that I’d be very happy to enjoy this weekend which are guaranteed to hit the spot.
