It’s quite delightful; its best years are ahead of it.
About The Wine
Best's have some of the world's oldest Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir dating back to the 1860s, but this wine comes from the 'younger vines' planted in the 1970s.
The two Pinots combine beautifully, there's floral aromatics from the Pinot Meunier and a little more grunt and drive from the Pinot Noir - the two balance each other wonderfully.
Campbell Mattinson awarded the 2017 vintage 93 points, it's a delicious and unique wine from this part of the world.
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.
