    There may be no other winery that defines the essence of Australia more than Best’s Great Western; family, history, truly unique wines, and its own region. Founded in 1866 by Henry Best, it has been managed by the Thomson family for six generations, including 50+ vintages by the current patriarch, Viv. These special wines form a true national treasure of our industry.

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2016

    #55 James Suckling's Top 100 Australian Wines of 2018

    This is youthfully fresh, unevolved and vividly fragrant on the nose with plenty of peppers across blackberries and dark cherries. The palate has a deeply spicy thread, running through rich blackberries and red and dark plums. The tannins are beautifully tailored through the finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2016

    This is a majestic shiraz, powerful and dense, well-structured for ageing yet with amazingly complex detail and charm for such a youngster, with star anise, pepper and assorted spice aromas. It has great concentration and persistence. A top vintage of this famous wine. (Screwcap)

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2016

    Deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is savoury and dried-spicy, dried-herbal, with star anise and mixed spice overtones. Very complex indeed. The wine is concentrated and powerful, with tremendously detailed flavour including lots of spice and a hint of pepper. A thoroughly majestic wine of boundless complexity and persistence, all hung on an impressively authoritative structure.

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2016

    Vines planted 1868, 1966, ‘70 and ‘92, hand-picked and sorted, open-fermented with 25% whole bunches, matured for 17 months in French oak (20% new). There should be no doubt that this is absolutely of world quality. It ticks each and every box with its deep colour, evocative bouquet smelling of ‘old money’ (in wine terms), a long and velvety palate, the finish simply wanting you to start the process over again.

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2016

    A great little duo hit my desk today in this wine and Seppelt St Peter Shiraz 2016. Great to see the two icon wines alongside and take some time with them. Reports suggest that growing grapes in Great Western in 2016 wasn’t without numerous challenges, and indeed this was an early vintage for Best's overall. It’s resulted in a meatier Bin 0, as such.

    Quite lush and ripe fruited, shows sweet, rich berry fruit characters, suggestions of milk chocolate, pretty violet and ‘floral’ notes and comes with a sheen of sweet, nougat oak. There’s depth to the medium-to-full weight shiraz characters, a plushness and pillowy texture with smooth tannins and a puff of warmth through the finish. The generosity of the wine will appeal to many, and it holds its bolder feel well. A younger drinking Bin 0 too.
