Best's Wines

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.

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.  Drink now to 2035

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).

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.

Shiraz has been the hallmark variety of Best's since the first vines were planted back in the 1868. Our Bin No. 0 has been around since the beginning, as well as the top grade of wine produced. Picked off the Concongella vineyard here at the winery, these wines show balance and length with a generous and rounded fruit structure, and have a natural ability to age.

Best’s Bin No. 0 Shiraz is produced from the four original Shiraz plantings in the low yielding blocks of the historic Concongella vineyard at Great Western. This includes nineteenth century and mid twentieth century plantings of Shiraz which result in very low yielding vines that produce intense flavours.

Released in our 150th year, this wine celebrates Best’s history. Sparky’s Block is a special parcel of Shiraz on some of the best soil in the Concongella Vineyard. Sparky is the nickname of Marcus Thomson, the youngest of the Thomson siblings, who was born in 1970. This wine was made in the traditional style, open fermented and aged in large oak. It shows dark fruit and spices, with long lean tannins that will reward those who are patient.
