2016 Bin 1 Shiraz / Cabernet 6 pack
The vineyard set off to a rapid start with ideal conditions for budburst and a warm spring for fruit set. The summer was mainly warm and dry. There were a few hot spells, and some vines suffered a little heat stress, but adequate foliage ensured the vines remained healthy. The earlier than normal vintage period provided good ripening and harvest conditions with clear warm days that cooled off at night.
Both wines show juicy dark red fruit flavours fill the mouth. The rich and ripe medium bodied texture is drawn out with powdery tannins for a long savoury finish.

I can tell you this wine is superb. The rating is what it is as there is always room for improvement but is in no way reflective of the product that is available that this fine family produces. I've been privileged to spend some time at vineyard to sample the numerous varieties on offer and was not disappointed in the selection and the manner it was presented. Thank you to Best wines and you team for a great afternoon and an insight into your fine historical vineyard. Regards, James & Georgina
