Best’s consistently produce outstanding Rieslings which are flavoursome, elegantly structured, spectacularly age-worthy and rated as one of the country’s best. Their Riesling vines were first planted as part of Henry Best’s ‘Nursery Block’ vineyard in the 1860’s with subsequent plantings in 1944 and 1978.

Brilliant water like core with a distinctive tinge of green around the outskirts. The nose offers up elevated lime, red apple and faint honeysuckle aromas followed by hints of citrus and orange blossom. The elegant palate has a fine thread of mineral laced acidity running through the flavours of citrus, granny smith apples and lime juice. Dry laser like finish with a long lime juice, green apple, lemon and flinty mineral aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Alc. 11%

Other Reviews….
Pale straw-green; the bouquet is enticing, but it's the palate that sends all the senses into overdrive. Intense lime juice intersects with shiny bright acidity. This takes mouthwatering flavours onto new levels. Great length inevitably follows, promising a very long life. The Great Western subregion deserves far greater recognition for its rieslings. Drink by 2032.

Great Western Riesling. If we’ve said it once …
Bit of a treat. Scintillating style, juiciness and length. Meyer lemon, lime, red apple and slate. Unencumbered lines. Pleasure and pain, in a good way. Oh the acidity. Drink 2018-2028.
