    Best's Thomson Family Shiraz - Langton's 'Exceptional' 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 Thomson Family Shiraz 2015

    The colour is fractionally lighter and more youthful than Bin No. 0, but takes the keynote of intensity onto another level. Attention to detail in the vineyard throughout the growing season, and in the winery from the first juice to flow from the berries to the end of the bottling line are all reflected here. There is a total fusion of complex fruits, of licorice, spice and pepper sidelights, of fine, yet ripe, tannins that come from very old vines, and French oak, the texture running lengthways and sideways, but never breaking line. Old vine wines like this make a mockery of vintage charts.

    Best's Thomson Family Shiraz 2015

    Henry Best’s original 15 rows of 1868 plantings yield just 300 cases of this deeply exotic shiraz, layered with black cherry and dark berry fruit and the exotic spice and supple tannins that can only come from grand, ancient vines. It propagates with exceptional persistence, at once full and complete and at the same time effortless and elegant. Profound.

    Best's Thomson Family Shiraz 2015

    This has the wow factor on the nose with sweetly alluring spices and lighter fragrant fruits that are in the red cherry, red plum and blackberry zone. Satsuma plum and blackberry flavor holds impressively fresh and long. Really elegant, fine and juicy. Power and depth. Easily enjoyable now and will last to 2030+. Screw cap.
