Best's Wines

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.

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.

On the nose, it appears closed at first. This wine takes time to reveal its intense dark fruit aromas with an array of complexity including all spice, nori, black pepper, blueberries, rose petals, cedar and dark chocolate. On the palate the essence of the vineyard is displayed with intense, yet vibrant medium-bodied flavours of dark fruits and chocolate. A graphite minerality and savoury fine tannins linger in the mouth.
