    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz - Langton's 'Excellent' Classification (VII 2018)

    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.

Press Review

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2017

    Sweaty, meaty, reductive aromas at first; youthful and bold, fresh and undeveloped. The wine is intense and firm, with a little (pleasant) bitterness in the tannins, bright and bold, youthful and quite solid, in need of some cellar-time. It has very good depth and intensity of flavour. There's a sweet-fruit middle and considerable elegance. It showed more fruit and complexity with airing, including some pepper and a slight balsamic-herb bunchy note. Potential plus. A superb wine in the making.

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2017

    From vines planted 1868, 1966, '70 and '92, hand-picked, sorted, fermented with 25% whole bunches, the remainder whole berry, matured for 17 months in French barriques and hogsheads (20% new). The deepest colour and largest build of the Best's Shirazs, here black and blue fruits have fine, but not apologetic tannins running alongside the fruits - which don't give it (the fruit) even a passing glance.

    Best's Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2017

    This has an array of wild red berries with a gently creamy edge to the palate that carries long, plush and silky tannin in a fine, precise style. Salty mineral kick at the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
