“At $25 it’s excellent buying.” – 93 Points Campbell Mattinson, Winefront.
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.
“I’m a regular fan of Best’s Bin 1 Shiraz. This release is no exception. It gets the balance right. Acidity, tannin, fruit, fragrance, an underlying undergrowthy complexity. Length: no problems there. A certain sinewy aspect to the finish, which works. A toastiness. It takes a little time to come forward in the glass but it gets there. At $25 it’s excellent buying.” – 93 Points Campbell Mattinson, Winefront.
