Bests' Great Western Bin 1 Shiraz 2019



95 pts Jame Suckling Feb 2022

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.

Regional DNA abounds in this purple-stained, black-hearted young shiraz chock-full of spice and delicious berries. A shiraz for both now and later such is its immediate upfront, plummy appeal, while boasting a tight tannin structure that won’t quit.

Winemaker Notes

With the inevitable scarcity of Best’s Thomson Family and Bin No. 0 Shiraz wines, Bin No. 1 Shiraz is the wine that gives people their first taste of our style of Great Western Shiraz. Made from Best’s own vineyards as well as trusted local growers, this wine is meticulously crafted with the same attention to detail as the flagship wines. Bin No. 1 Shiraz represents the essence of Best’s Great Western’s winemaking ideals and the distinction of the Great Western region.

Bin No. 1 is a classic, cool-climate, aromatic Shiraz, made in a style that’s floral, spicy and peppery yet retains generous fruit characteristics and intensity. It is a well-balanced wine where alcohol does not dominate. This is an elegant wine crafted to drink now, and makes a great accompaniment to food.

A warm, dry growing season meant that the vines ripened quickly, and crops were lower than average.  Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and some February rain gave the vies a well-deserved drink and freshened them up before the grapes were harvested.

Bin 1 Shiraz represents the essence of Best’s winemaking ideals and the uniqueness of the Great Western region.
