Vintage 2020 Wrap-Up

2020 WILL CERTAINLY GO DOWN IN HISTORY as a vintage to remember! Unlike other Australian regions, we were fortunate to be unaffected by the smoke caused by the bushfires (mind you, we’ve had our fair share of fires in previous years!) and, while yields were down, the quality is looking superb.

Sweet Pea Fish Pie

There’s nothing more satisfying than tucking into a hearty and wholesome fish pie with a glass of wine on a cool evening. Jamie Oliver’s Sweet Pea Fish Pie is a clever and delicious dish that uses freezer staples. You can use whatever fish you have on hand and leave the spinach out if you can’t find any at your local supermarket. It’s a versatile family-favourite that pairs perfectly with Best’s 2019 Great Western Riesling. Why not try making it this weekend?

Best’s high-flying fight against frost

There are some challenges in viticulture that are hard to plan for, and the devastating black frost of 4 November 2017 was one that took its toll. Despite having frost fans set up in the vineyard, the sudden onslaught of a cold burst of air that immediately settled on Best’s Concongella vineyard wiped out a large percentage of our fruit. The resulting 2018 harvest was decimated. If you’ve not heard the story, we wrote about the impact of the frost in a previous post back in early December 2017.
