By taking the free run juice from predominantly Pinot Noir and Shiraz grapes, we have created a light, vibrant and dry Rosé, with strawberry and cherry flavour, pefect for the warmer months, which can be enjoyed chilled with food or as an aperitif.
The Great Western region lends itself well to producing exceptional Riesling - diurnal weather promoting natural acidity and lifted aromatics. There is great history and pedigree in our Riesling. The origins of the mother vines, planted in our nursery block, have been traced back to Germany.
Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. The base wine is left on yeast lees in bottle for 20 months or more and disgorged in the traditional method. The dosage liqueur contains a small amount of old Best’s Liqueur Muscat, which gives the wine an added layer of interest.
