Made from Henry Best’s first plantings of nearly 150 years ago, the ancient Nursery Block is a veritable vineyard museum with 39 separate varieties, 8 remaining unknown and unnamed to this day. A lighter bodied wine that explodes with the personality, soil and history of the vineyard site.

In 1967, for the first time, Best’s made wine solely from the Miller’s Burgundy planting of 1868, in the mid 1980’s, Danny Schuster, a viticulturist and author, identified that the small amount of Pinot Noir amongst the Pinot Meunier, one Swiss and one French. The French clone was deemed superior, so eleven further rows of the French selection were planted in 1987.

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.

One of the varieties grown in our 13 Arce Block, it was planted as Merlot, but as it grew, it looked and behaved differently, and after investigation it was found to be Cabernet Franc. Made only a few times since it's planting in the 1980's, (when we have some spare),  this wine has the ability to age well (the 1998 is looking superb).

Our 13 Acre Block is the first block you pass coming down the drive. It was planted in the early 1980 to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a couple of rows of Petit Verdot. Made in only the best years, it shows what great wines are possible from this small patch.
