Best's Great Western 2012 Bin 0 Shiraz

Intense velvety dark fruit restrained by fine crumbly tannins. The balance of perfumed fruit, tight grained oak and minerality lingers in the mouth. Rich opulent aromas of dark ripe fruits lifted by peppery bush spices, wildflowers and delicately toasted French oak.

SKU: 2012 BIN 0
Wine Profile

We have produced Shiraz at Best’s Great Western since the late 1800s, although the actual date of the first ‘Bin 0’ Great Western Shiraz is lost in the annals of time. What is certain is that our Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz is generally produced from our oldest plantings and selected from the lowest yielding blocks of the historic Concongella vineyard at Great Western.

In recent years Bin 0 Shiraz comes only from our four heritage Shiraz blocks surrounding the winery and homestead. These are the 1867 Thomson Family Block, the 1966 ‘Barts Block’, 1970 Block and The Hill. Each of these blocks provides unique characters to the resulting wine – The Hill block for instance provides an aromatic dimension to its fruit because of the fast draining white gravel soil.

Bin 0 is made to be an age worthy style and has been the undisputed icon of Great Western Shiraz for many decades. It is internationally acclaimed as one of Australia’s finest Shiraz wines.

Picture this if you will. You arrive at a classical music concert and the orchestra members are tuning their instruments and it sounds like a bit of a mish mash of tones and notes. The conductor steps onto the stage, taps his baton on his lectern, raises both his arms in the air and with the movement of his baton the orchestra produces beautiful music. That was the first thing that came to my mind when I first tasted this wine. It seemed a like it was teasing me with snippets of what it could do with the deep, alluring colour that demanded you take in its aromas that were intense and lively. But then, with the introduction of the decanter, everything came together beautifully. The blue/black fruits, trademark pepper, subtle spice followed by the crescendo which was the lovely mouth feel of creamy oak and long velvety tannins. This piece of ‘music’ is going to be stuck in my head for very long time.

Rather than review the Bin O (although... it is an astonishingly good drop of vino), I feel as though the tremendous review by author Tony Peters almost over shadows this tremendous wine! What a guy, Tony bloody Peters! The imagery created brilliantly with Peters' 'classical music concert' not only poetically illustrates his interpration of the wine, but also lets readers know of the importance of the use of a decanter. I'm giving this review 5 stars. Good effort Tony Peters... You have done it again!
