Best's Wines

Our "House Block" is as it says, is planted beside the Best's homestead and produces some exceptional parcels of fruit. In the best years we take these parcels and make something a little special out of them. Picked earlier, these wines have great flavours and are made off dry to balance the wine, making a great all round style.

This wine is a representation of another facet of Riesling’s charms. Displaying complex aromatic honeyed richness with texture and acidity to balance, it is the ideal accompaniment to stinky creamy cheese.

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.

This wine contains Shiraz from the best elevated vineyards in Great Western and is co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier. The viognier helps brighten the colour, lift the aromatics and polish the Shiraz flavours on the palate.

Made from a few select rows from a patch of vines planted on the gravel hill across the road from the winery, this wine displays more aromatic characters and elegance than it's counterparts from the clay flat country along the creek at the winery.

SKU: 17WGHSHZ

One of the varieties grown in our 13 Acre 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 its planting in the 1980's, (when we have some spare),  this wine has the ability to age well (the 1998 is looking superb).
