Introduced due to the relative scarcity of Best’s Thomson Family and Bin 0 Shiraz wines, the Bin 1 Shiraz aims to provide an introduction to Great Western Shiraz style at a price point that gives the wine broader market access. Made predominantly from Best’s own vineyards it combines the varietals generosity with the region's cool climate elegance.

Elegant yet flavour packed cool climate Shiraz.

Totally opaque black dark red colour with a bright dark red hue. Expressive red to dark plum and liquorice scents are trailed by a mix of vanillin cedar, fennel, clove and peppered meats. Mid weighted, supple and amply endowed with rich red to dark fruits, delicious red to dark plum, liquorice and blueberry flavours meld into subtly smoked vanillin cedar, fennel and peppered dried meat characters. Very refined in its feel with polished tannins and a long spicy aftertaste brimming with freshness.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
A spicy and super-fragrant, cool-climate shiraz that is packed with red and dark plums, raspberries and dark chocolate. Plenty of complexity inherent here. The palate is elegant, yet flavor-packed, delivering punchy, mouthwatering summer berries and plums. Wow! Drink over the next decade. Screw cap.
