Bests' Great Western Riesling 2021



94 pts James Suckling April 2022

A super-fresh riesling with lightly spicy edges to the lemon and sliced-pear fruit. There’s green apple on the palate and a dry, crisp run to the long, mouthwatering finish. Drink this young. Screw cap.

Winemaker Notes

Riesling vines were first planted as part of Henry Best’s ‘Nursery Block’ vineyard in the 1860s. From subsequent plantings in 1944 (since removed), 1978 and 1998 Riesling became a significant part of our regime.The Riesling vines from Great Western produce flavoursome, elegantly structured, spectacularly age-worthy Rieslings which stand confidently alongside some of the most outstanding Australian examples of the variety. In recent times, the style has evolved to match the continental climatic conditions to a beautifully balanced wine with texture and aromatics.

The Riesling at Best’s have a proven ability to mature gracefully for 20 years or more. This example is no exception and its youthful freshness is a good sign for its long life in the cellar. It will gather complex toasty aromas and flavours as the years pass.
