One of the most consistent wines in Australia over the last 20 years must be Best’s Bin 0, still produced from the four original Shiraz plantings in the low yielding blocks of the historic Concongella vineyard at Great Western. Vintage after vintage, this monument to Victorian history holds its ground or even excels.
The wine presents itself with a totally opaque black crimson core and a dark crimson dark purple hue. Both alluring and intense the nose is a sniffers delight of liquorice and blackberries overlaid by some meatiness followed by some subtle clove, toasty vanillin oak and peppery end notes. Medium bodied the palate shows great refinement whilst still possessing abundant richness and power within a structured framework. Generous flavours of blackberries and liquorice are intermeshed with a meaty like mouthfeel underlined by subtle toasty vanillin oak, light earth and spice. Cleverly concealed fine grained tannins with long persistent aftertaste of blackberries, liquorice, dried meats, spicy lightly toasted oak and blackpepper.
Cellar 8-10 years.
Such charm that it’ impossible not to fall for this vintage right away, yet it’s built with the stamina for long endurance. Great intensity meets medium-bodied grace in a core layered with violets, Satsuma plums, blueberries and black cherries. Nuances of liquorice, high cocoa dark chocolate and vanilla flash by along the way, but the focus remains resolutely on brilliantly defined dark fruits. Mineral-fine, tightly structured tannins point to great things in the next decade. Just 800 cases.
