Best's Wines

Pinot Meunier is among the oldest vines planted at our Concongella vineyard, dating back to 1868. Planrted as Miller Burgundy, it was used to blend with other varieties until 1967, when Viv Thomson convinced his father to make a single varietal wine. That first single varietal vintage was so good, it's been made that way ever since. Along with Shiraz planted beside it, these wines show great balance, length and fruit breadth, with an ability to age exceeding well.

One of the varieties grown in our 13 Arce 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 it's 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.

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.

Released in our 150th year, this wine celebrates Best’s history. The Concongella is a replica of the original red styles made in Great Western with the resultant wine greater than its varietal components. We took fruit from our original 1868 plantings of Pinot Meunier, Shiraz and Dolcetto, which were co-fermented and macerated over several weeks during the 2013 vintage, before being basket pressed and matured in oak. The use of a cork with a wax seal forms a part of the style and its evolution.
