Best's Great Western LSV Shiraz 6pk 2018
*LSV Shiraz indent in QLD*
The LSV Shiraz Viognier is named after the late vigneron Kim Ludvigson. Kim passed away on his vineyard in 2014, and Best's felt it fitting to name the wine 'Ludvigson' Shiraz Viognier. Kim was a beloved member of the local wine community and well known and respected amongst his peers in the wine industry.
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 Great Western LSV Shiraz Viognier 2018
Opti-harvested, whole berry fermentation with 15% whole bunches and 2% viognier. A rich, layered hedonistic wine, fruits of forest/forest floor, with both blackberry and raspberry on display. The balance of tannins, oak and fruit is evidenced by the wine (and its show success).
