Palate Profile

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 core with a bright dark red hue. Elevated spicy fresh plum, ripe dark cherry and liquorice aromas intermingle with meaty clove like characters, light smoky cedar and white pepper notes. Medium bodied with a supple, elegant feel, there’s an abundance of richness to the juicy blackberry, dark plum and dark cherry fruit. Elements of liquorice, clove, smoked meats, spicy vanillin cedar and pepper then move in. Excellent concentration and power with velvety tannins and a long savoury aftertaste that’s bursting with rich dark fruit.

Critic Awards

Sweaty, meaty, reductive aromas at first; youthful and bold, fresh and undeveloped. The wine is intense and firm, with a little bitterness in the tannins, bright and bold, youthful and quite solid, in need of some cellar-time. Good depth and intensity of flavour. There's a sweet-fruit middle and considerable elegance. A superb wine in the making.

From vines planted 1868, 1966, '70 and '92, hand-picked, sorted, fermented with 25% whole bunches, the remainder whole berry, matured for 17 months in French barriques and hogsheads (20% new). The deepest colour and largest build of the Best's Shirazs, here black and blue fruits have fine, but not apologetic tannins running alongside the fruits.
