The Best's Great Western wines are the finest expression of Shiraz and Cabernet that Viv Thomson produces on a regular basis. His philosophy is simple: “No vine is picked until its grown enough to be mature, no grape used unless it is in peak condition, no parcel considered unless it lives up to the winemakers exacting standards.” Vinification takes place in open stainless steel fermenters.

A very classy Cabernet which was partially sourced from the original three rows of Best’s 1800’s nursery block at Concongella together with two blocks planted in the early 1980’s. In order to retain the grapes natural freshness and fruit characters the wine was given a long, cool fermentation. It was aged for nineteen months in a combination of French oak barriques and American oak puncheons. Very deep crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Perfumed nose of blackcurrant followed by a hint of cedar and cigar box, with very spicy back palate. Fine grained tannins, excellent balance. Aftertaste of spice, blackcurrant and white pepper.
