Best's Great Western 1999 FHT Shiraz

The 1999 “F.H.T.” follows in the widely acclaimed reputation of fine Shiraz produced from grapes grown exclusively on Best’s Concongella vineyard. Great Western Shiraz is renowned for its longevity, however maturation in oak puncheons for over two and a half years prior to bottling makes this Shiraz very approachable even as a young wine.

Wine Profile

Viv Thomson notes: " As a result of severe spring frosts in 1998, the 1999 vintage was reduced to 20% of our average harvest. The meager yield combined with ideal ripening conditions produced a wine, which I consider unique, and comparable only with the best vintages of Shiraz produced from the Concongella vineyard. As such we have noted this vintage with the initials F.H.T. in the memory of my late father Frederick Hamill Thomson.”

A lifted and intense bouquet of warm violets, cedar and cherry. White pepper dominates the palate providing length and roundness with rich dark chocolate, plums, raspberry and cherry undertones that build on the palate, producing a very complex and enjoyable wine.

I have had the good fortune to drink 2 of the 99 FHT's over the last 6 months. A wonderful wine. Balanced with good fruit and length on the palate. So pleased I bought the 2nd one
