About

The Riesling from the Best’s House Block was spectacularly good in 2016.

As such, winemaker Justin Purser opted to keep a small parcel separate to make a special “Kabinett” inspired Riesling.

This is the most intense of the Best’s Rieslings. A slight amount of residual sugar retained in the wine to lend a luscious texture and balance the formidable natural acidity found in the fruit from this 38-year-old vineyard.

There are few estates in this country that could produce such a Riesling in this style and of this quality. It’s only made in the best years, Riesling fans should buy with confidence.

What It Tastes Like

A choir of smells rise from the glass. There’s lemons and lime juice, flickers of bath salts, honey and sweet blossoms. The palate is glorious. Free-flowing, juicy, tight and succulent with steel and apples at the core. Acid provides the horse-power; the gentle sweetness, the comfortable ride. It has power and class, elegance and restraint. An Australian Riesling with a unique voice.
