Riesling vines were first planted as part of Henry Best’s ‘Nursery Block’ vineyard in the 1860s. Subsequent plantings followed in 1944 and 1978. Always very flavoursome and very age worthy, the Best’s Great Western Rieslings are renown for their beautiful balance, texture and aromatics.
Brilliant water like colour with greenish tinged edges. Pronounced aromas of fresh limes intermix with red apple and hints of honeysuckle followed by some orange blossom and subtle slatey mineral notes. Mouth watering lime, red apple and citrus flavours have a generous feel with subtle infusions of honeysuckle, orange blossom and flinty minerals underpinning the fruit. Finishes dry and fresh with snappy acidity and a long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
The riesling vines used to produce this wine come from cuttings off the original 1866 planting of Best’s. Cool, huh? Always a zingy number and distinctly Aussie riesling in that zingy, tart, acid driven way, here’s another cracker.
Lime juice and zest, steely mineral notes, fragrant and frisky to taste, all mouth-watering and refreshing and generally just delicious. Quite a bit of concentration here but the freshness is ludicrous and challenges any perceived weight here. A touch of sweetness? Maybe. A delight. Drink 2019 - 2030+

Whole-bunch pressed to stainless steel for cold fermentation, stopped with 7g/l residual sugar. Gold medal Melbourne Wine Awards ’19, top gold Victorian Wine Show ’19. It has the intense lime zest and pith ﬂavours I ﬁnd irresistible. Bright acidity glides alongside the fruit. Drink to 2035.
