Best’s impressive range of Great Western Shiraz has long taken centre stage with their Cabernets sitting in the shadows. Showcasing the regions elegance and cool climate structure the Cabernet possesses dense rich fruit and is capable of cellaring for up to 20 years. At under $25 it consistently delivers terrific value.
Very deep midnight black core with a vibrant purple red hue. Fragrant red currant and red liquorice aromas infused with violets blossom from the glass followed by some dusty vanillin cedar, subtle earth and bay leaf notes. Rich juicy red currant and red liquorice flavours carry medium body weight and good flesh across the palate. Spicy vanillin cedar, dusty earth and spicy bay leaf infusions linger underneath. Finishes with a youthful freshness, fine grained tannins and a long savoury, spicy red fruited aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 14%

Other Reviews....
If this wine auditioned for a role in the film adaptation of 'Remains of the Day' it would get the part in a heartbeat. It's just so exquisitely well mannered. Ultrafine tannin, perfectly ripened fruit, the line of acidity placed just so. Even the oak wraps smokily around the herb notes, as if to ensure that they don't appear too loud. This mid-weight cabernet would make the perfect butler to the finest of meals. Drink by 2034.
