Pinot Meunier is among the oldest vines planted at our Concongella vineyard, dating back to 1868. Planted as Miller Burgundy, it was used to blend with other varieties until 1967, when Viv Thomson convinced his father to make a single varietal wine. That first single varietal vintage was so good, it's been made that way ever since and now has a cult following for the limited parcels that we release. Along with the historical Shiraz planted beside it, these wines show great balance, length and fruit breadth, with an ability to age exceeding well.

Best's Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and dark fruit characters.  The base wine is left on yeast lees in bottle for 22 months or more and disgorged in the traditional method.  The dosage liqueur for this wine contains a small quantitiy of very old Best's Liqueur Muscat that gives the wine an added layer of interest.
 
Great Western is arguably the best place in the world for Sparkling Shiraz, and the most historic. Quote from Tyson Stelzer.
