Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz is produced from the four original Shiraz plantings in the low yielding blocks of the historic Concongella vineyard at Great Western. This includes nineteenth century and mid twentieth century plantings of Shiraz.
Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Lifted blackberry, red plum and liquorice aromas infused with blackpepper sail confidently through the nostrils followed by some vanillin oak, scorched earth and spicy dried meat notes. Medium bodied, rich and seductive blackberry, plum and liquorice fruits are interwoven with vanillin cedar, scorched earth and peppered dried meat characters. Refined yet opulently fruited with a polished tannin structure it concludes with a long amply powered aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years

Other Reviews….
Vines date back to as far as 1868, the youngest 1992. Right there you have an inkling of what is to come: a stunning concentration of fruit. Impressive, but the supple, savoury tannins are up to the task of meeting that deep intensity of black fruits, woody spice and violets. What a team for the future. Of course, this is not to forget the vanillan warm-oak component. A wine of history that still stands firm today. Drink by 2040.
