I’m a regular fan of Best’s Bin 1 Shiraz. This release is no exception.
About The Wine
Best's Great Western is one of the country's oldest wineries, but they continue to innovate and evolve.
Their Bin 1 Shiraz is the ultimate introduction to their famous style. Not sure whether the term 'introduction' befits a previous Jimmy Watson winner, but that just goes to demonstrate the value available here.
The 2016 is in great shape. Campbell Mattinson rated it 93 points, noting, "At $25 it’s excellent buying."
There aren't many better and more qualified Shiraz on the market than the Best's Bin 1 - class and value both high in this release.
About Best's Great Western
Best's Great Western is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in the country.
Their iconic Nursery Block is home to some of the oldest clonal material for particular varieties that can be found anywhere in the world. Established in the late 1860s, this precious vineyard is envied by much of the wine growing world.
Their wines are consistently excellent: the Shiraz dark and powerful, the Rieslings full flavoured and impeccably balanced, and the rare releases of Old Vine Meunier and Thomson Family Shiraz are some of the most collectable red wines in the country.
The Thomson family, and the Best family before them, have given us one of the true treasures of the Australian wine scene.
