Best's Old Vine Pinot Meunier 6pk 2019
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 Old Vine Pinot Meunier 2019
It's one thing to have seriously old vines, planted in 1868 by Henry Best, and quite another to have them metamorphose into a contemporary wine full of harmony and balance. Well here it is in all its beauty. Heady with florals aplenty, an array of Middle Eastern spices and mint with a delicacy on the palate, yet there's substance and detail too. A wine of finesse and elegance. Respect.
