2015 James Halliday Wine Companion

James Halliday's 2015 Wine Companion was released last week featuring wineries from across the country and an array of fabulous wines produced by some very talented winemakers. 

Our 2012 Old Vine Pinot Meunier (97 points), 2012 Thomson Family Shiraz (97 points), 2012 Bin 0 Shiraz (96 points), 2012 Bin 1 Shiraz (95 points), 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (95 points), 2013 Riesling (94 points) and 2013 Young Vine Pinot Meunier (93 points) were all acknowledged, receiving some wonderful reviews.

Our winemaking philosophy at Best’s is that great wines are made in the vineyard.  Even while practicing a minimalist approach, attention to detail is key. We avoid the overpowering use of oak or additional treatments and instead prefer to let the fantastic fruit from Great Western tell the story, which is evident in all seven of these featured wines. 

We have has been consistently producing exceptional, food-friendly, elegant and approachable wines with great longevity since 1866.
Our patriarch, Viv Thomson and his son Ben, current Managing Director and Vineyard Manager, have worked with Best’s winemakers for the last 40 years to ensure continuity of house style while encouraging the winemakers to constantly look for ways to innovate and improve. 

All of these wines were produced by our very talented winemaker, Justin Purser. Justin, also a firm believer that great wines start in the vineyard, produces wines that reflect where they came from. When you enjoy a glass of Best's you enjoy a glass of Great Western. The characteristics reflected in the wine are a product of our region - our unique climate, soil types, and vineyard practices all contribute to the style of our wines.
