About The Wine
As always, this wine from Best's is one of the most approachable and easy-to-enjoy Rieslings around.
Best's have a long history with this variety, with winemaker Justin Purser suggesting this release from the well-balanced, long and cool 2017 vintage is more reminiscent of those Rieslings from the 80's and 90's with its balance, delicacy and easy charm.
It received a glowing 94 point review from Campbell Mattinson, and was named in James Halliday's Top 100 Wines of 2018 with an emphatic 96 point review.
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.
