Bagot Station 'Captain's Table' Barossa Valley Dry Red Blend 2015
Region: Barossa Valley, South Australia
The first Bagot Station was a Shiraz 2011 and five others have since been bottled with each being different. The idea behind the Bagot label is not sourcing from the same general vineyard location but rather the wine develops from managing-balancing all the Barossa stocks. So, a bit of this and that to make varietal labelled blends and even Dry Red blends.
Charles Bagot was a Barossa pioneer and leased, in 1841, a huge property that spanned the norther perimeter of the Barossa and while he did plant vines, he was not involved in the wine business. So, a business generalist, a merchant, ideal then to be a Barossa wine merchant sourcing many wines for the final bottling. We still have several wondrous Barossa reds to release from 2015 though the rest of this vintage has been in oak long enough and Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro and Cabernet have been included in this Captains Table dry red blend.
