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.
Waffle: Obviously I do not know the correct wine banter but for those of us who just want to know if it's good or not - Yes it is 10/10. This is what a shiraz is all about. This wine did not last long at my house, I could write a number of excuses why it didn't but I won't bore you with these as it was quite simply delicious. This wine is the good pair of jeans that everyone needs, you can dress it up with a dinner party with wine snobs and an eye fillet or dress it down (like myself) enjoying a pizza in your trackies. This price point, the renowned name and the quality of the product allows for this.
This wine feels very sensual and grabs your attention without demanding it. I am sure you can keep it in your wine rack/cellar for a while but I would advise to drink it now and don't wait.
I will happily invite this shiraz back to my place most weekends.
