Best's Great Western 2013 '13 Acre' Cabernet Sauvignon
The first vineyard you will encounter at the entrance of Best’s. Consisting mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and smaller quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this vineyard produces tiny amounts of intensely flavoured fruit. Only produced when the conditions are right to fully ripen the Cabernets and attain the balance and complexity achieved with the other varieties.
This wine was reincarnated in 2012, the first time since 2005, as in November 2006 the vineyard was hit with a severe frost when the temperature plummeted to -7ºC. It took this time and lots of careful nurturing for the vines to recover and regain their balance.
