“Balance is spot on, so too tannin and length.” 93+ Points Campbell Mattinson
Best’s Great Western as a Shiraz ‘house’ has gathered experience with the variety through the legacy of Best’s long winemaking history dating back to 1866. Bin 1 Shiraz is the wine that often gives people an introduction to the regional style of Great Western Shiraz.
Made predominantly from Best’s own vineyards and meticulously crafted with the same attention to detail as the Icon wines, Bin 1 Shiraz represents the essence of Best’s Great Western winemaking ideals and the uniqueness of the Great Western region.
Bin 1 is a classic, cool climate, aromatic Shiraz, made in a style that is perfumed, spicy and peppery, yet well balanced with no overt dominance of alcohol. It’s a great match with food – particularly dishes like spring lamb.
“The combination of quality, style and price make this a no-brainer. You can buy this with absolute confidence. It’s fresh-faced and fruit driven but notes of cloves, gum leaves, undergrowth and toasty oak add various other angles and perspectives. There’s a silken, almost creamy aspect to the texture but the fruit remains vigorous; it has the liveliness of nerves. Balance is spot on, so too tannin and length. Go forth. Prosper. Drink well.” – 93+ Points Campbell Mattinson
