- ABV 13.5%
- Closure: Stelvin
Opaque dark red black core with a bright dark red hue. Fresh red plum and liquorice scents combine with vanillin cedar, light earth, fresh herbs and spicy pepper. Medium bodied with good richness and a fresh elegant feel, the palate is amply endowed with delicious plum, ripe blueberry and liquorice flavours which sit over vanillin cedar, light spicy earth and pepper. Finishes with fresh youthful acidity, well integrated finely grained tannins and a savoury red to blue fruit, liquorice, vanillin cedar, faint earth and spicy pepper aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Best’s Bin 1 Shiraz, not to be confused with Best’s Bin 0.
I looked at this over three days and a) it didn’t show an inch of oxidation at any stage, and b) all it really did throughout that time was turn increasingly elegant. On the first day I consumed a glass and was surprised at how rich and ripe it seemed; I found myself apologising to my cool-climate-loving friends (they’re Victorians, you know) for serving something so fruit dominant. Of course, they looked at me non-plussed (or with ambivalence, I’m always confusing the two). When I came back the next day and then the day after what really impressed me was the finesse of the tannin, and how seamlessly it sits in the wine. This is a wine of the spotless kind, a trait we can eternally appreciate. Berries mostly, red, blue and black; a hint of florals, some garden mint, the merest suggestion of twigs. It felt glossy and polished at first but over the course it seemed to resemble Best’s shiraz more than anything; it just has that cool-but-warm flow; drinking it is like taking a midday stroll in Spring. The t-shirt I would have printed for this wine simply says: It’s not hard to be a fan. Drink 2018-2029.
