As one of Australia’s oldest and continuously family owned and operated wineries, Best's craft extraordinary and iconic wines of elegance and longevity. Their flagship wine, the Thomson Family Shiraz, has an 'Outstanding' designation from the revered Langton’s Auction house and Bin O Shiraz is rated as 'Distinguished'.
Owned by just two families since 1866, the Best family who founded the winery, and today, their vision lives on through the Thomson’s, having purchased the property after Henry Best’s death in 1920.
Bouquet: Lifted aromas of rose petal, blueberry, black jubes and asian spices with some nutty notes in the background.
Palate: Juicy red and blue fruit flavours fill the mouth. The plush medium bodied texture is drawn out for a long savoury finish.
Cellaring: This vibrant and youthful wine is great to enjoy now with food but will soften and gain complexity over the next 10-15 years. Ideal to drink with a seared Venison ribeye steak and a wild mushroom sauce.
Vintage: A moderate season with no real hot spells. Very cool nights and warm days ensured the grapes ripened fully but retained all their natural acidity. Quality is very good, but crops were reduced due to the dry weather and spring frosts
