Winery Details

    *Shiraz Viognier indent in QLD*

    The LSV Shiraz Viognier is named after the late vigneron Kim Ludvigson. Kim pasted 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 2016

    Very good colour; very intense and complex from the word go, reflecting the 15% whole bunch/5% co-fermented viognier, with exotic aromas and a splendidly textured and structured palate.

    Best's Great Western LSV Shiraz Viognier 2016

    A terrific example of fresh, vibrant and deeply flavoured shiraz viognier. Its name references the fruit source from Ludvigsen Vineyard, which was established by the late Kym Ludvigson, a renowned viticulturalist and member of the Grampians community. The wine has impressive ripe dark cherries, blackberries and plums with a wild array of perfume and spices, some white peppers, dark chocolate and candied orange rind. A succulent, flavoursome palate with smooth, glossy tannins and a super deep, fleshy finish. Drink or hold.

Very good colour; very intense and complex from the word go, reflecting the whole bunch/whole berry/co-fermented viognier, with exotic aromas and a splendidly textured and structured palate. 14% alc.
