2014 Sparky's Block Shiraz

The release of this wine in 2016 commemorates 150 years of continuous operation here at Best’s Great Western.

Sparky’s Block is a special parcel of Shiraz on some of the best soil in the Concongella Vineyard. Sparky is the nickname of Marcus Thomson, the youngest of the Thomson siblings and born in 1970.

The deep loams and gravels from the old creek bed provide a matrix for extensive root systems stretching several metres underground. At 45 years of age these vines are considered to be at their peak for producing quality fruit.   97 points - James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

Wine Profile

 Colour Inky dark red with a purple hue.

 Bouquet Lifted and heady aromas of dark concentrated fruits, anisees, saffron, pepper, black olives,. Cinnamon and violets.

 Palate Rich and flowing with a voluptuous but medium body and super long aromatic tannins.

 Vintage Drink in 2 to 40 years
               Under Glass Stopper
               As above but slightly more closed and backwards
               Drink 5 to 50 years

The best section of the block was selected for this wine. We have sealed half of this wine under cork and the other half under a glass stopper to see what will happen, the reason being that the cork will add complexity to the evolution of the wine and the glass stopper will seal the wines freshness for longer.
