Reminiscent wine. On the nose concentrated berries with a slight tint of spice rack. Very much as you could imagine when you have just finished a traditional roast with the lingering spices but then the berry pie comes out of the oven for dessert. The aroma is stunning. The palate is simple yet satisfying like the berry pie. There are slight to medium tannins that should clear out with a little bit of decanting or aerating. Overall a simple yet satisfying wine that would be absolutely fantastic with the sunday roast and berry pie!

Drank with friends over a slow cooked beef ragu. Very deep purple in the glass. White pepper and ripe red fruits on the nose. Could've used a few hours in the decanter to open up. Beautiful mouthfeel. Medium bodied, medium tannins, smooth enough but with a fair bit of a spice. Wine opened up with time and food adding more layers of blueberry and plum, a bit of oak and leather. Long finish a surprise. An excellent wine that will be even more excellent in 5+ years. Love your work, Best's.

We had the pleasure of reviewing this wine as part of the Best's Tasting Panel. There were 5 of us with varying experience and knowledge. We also had a bottle of the 2014 WGH Shiraz at the same tasting which was very interesting. They are both wines that have the integrated bright fruit characteristics that we associate with Bests wine. The wines are always mouth-filling and textural, and not dominated by oak flavours. We noticed a hint of chocolate, and sour cherries. It is very fruity and spicy, cranberries and plums were also mentioned. It is intense but yet medium bodied and easy drinking. There is a distinct note of the stalky whole bunch fermentation which provides a lift. Everyone preferred the 2016 to the 2014. We think its probably a superior vintage. We did think the 2014 improved over the course of dinner. Drink now and enjoy but it should improve for many years. Lovely wine. We also reviewed the 2016 13 Acre Cabernet blend and it was a split decision. Both good wines.

There was a buzz of excitement as we prepared a quality eye fillet to enjoy with White Gravels Hill Shiraz. I let the wine breathe for a while before diligently swirling and noticing delicate tears slide back down the glass. The first mouthful was dry and tasted of blackberry and plum with a slight tannin. The characteristic that struck me the most was the smoothness which made it a pleasure to drink. I prefer a medium bodied red so this wine ticked all the boxes for me.

The 2016 White Gravels Hills Shiraz has you at hello, and delivers a structure flaunting itself as a wine that knows how to dance.

Deep burgundy in colour and striking on the nose with a peppery savoury waft, with a hint of rose petals.

Full fruit delivers first through the mouth, with a swift spice pop on the tip of the tongue. This racy wine lingers nicely.

Drinking this wine with a hard goat cheese, and with eyes closed I swear I was in the foothills of wherever the animals chew their grass breathing in the country air. The slight sweetness of the cheese was stunning with the slightly spicy red, a brilliant compliment.

This wine will suit you if you’re after a Shiraz that delivers on bold fruit tradition, with an added spicy delight and an underlying complexity that puts the White Gravels Hills Shiraz on my dance card anytime.
