2016 Best's Shiraz Nouveau

Grampians, VIC

Insanely delicious Shiraz inspired by a classic Best's wine style.



About The Wine

This is a 'new' addition to the Best's portfolio, or rather, the reinvention of an old one.

While digging through the Best's cellar, winemaker Justin Purser came across some wines from the 1980s. These Shiraz were made at lower alcohols and with carbonic maceration during ferment.

This lighter, joyful expression of Shiraz is becoming more and more popular today and this release adds another shade of Shiraz to the exceptional range at Best's.

This is a delicious Summer red and an absolute bargain from the Best's cellar. Everything that's old is new again.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Boysenberries, jubes, violets and red ribbon licorice. It's free wheeling Shiraz without inhibitions. Sweet fruit and spices with soft tannin and a delicious berry-infused finish. Belting wine with loads of personality. Looks its best with a slight chill. - Different Drop Wine Team
