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.
Deep black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Elevated spicy red plum and liquorice aromas intermingle with clove, earthy graphite and white pepper notes. Red to dark plum, liquorice and blueberry fruits have a fleshy textural feel with notions of clove, earth and peppered dried meats lying underneath. Fine grained tannins concluding with refinement and medium length.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14%

Other Reviews….
This is a traditional Australian shiraz in the best sense, with a wealth of black, red and ripe orange fruit. Deep and rich,with a stunningly fine tannin structure and a lovely blood orange freshness at the long, structured and spicy finish. Excellent aging potential. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

A vibrant, deeply coloured shiraz with that distinctive Grampians peppery bouquet with briar, black cherry, mixed berry, aniseed and bush mint. Pepperiness lights up the palate which is supple and dark fruited, driving long. Drink by 2033.
