Best's Wines

2017 Riesling

2017 Riesling

The Rieslings of Best’s have a proven ability to mature gracefully for 20 years or more. This example is no exception and its youthful freshness is a good sign for its long life in the cellar. It will gather complex toasty aromas and flavours as the years pass. Enjoy with fish and chips by the sea in summer or a spicy fish curry by a fire in winter.

2017 Vintage    Fantastic winter rains set the vineyards up for ideal spring growing conditions that saw great flowering and fruit set. The mild summer conditions and long ripening period (with some timely small rain events) ensured that the fruit matured in near perfect conditions for harvest. 2017 is a classic vintage that has more resemblance to those of the 80s and 90s than the vintages of this century.

On the nose - lemon & lime aromas, mostly lime, just explode out of the glass at first instance. This is followed by a lifted blossom character - can’t quite put my finger on it.

The lime character carries onto the pallet, supported by a beautiful acid backbone, finishing with just enough of the lingering, but very dry, citrus flavours to make you go back for more & more. Alas we only had the one bottle. Oh well, we know how to fix that !!

We initially went looking for the steely mineral characters we are used to seeing in rieslings from other regions such as the Clare. Not there at all, but who cares. Seriously, it’s just delicious.

We tested it with a Thai massaman curry next up. Absolutely perfect - the lime and the acid matched the Thai flavours a treat. We just had to finish the bottle with dinner and once again were left wanting more.

A super fruit driven wine which is a perfect match for Asian food. In short, we are fans.

A lovely citrusy nose is evident as soon as you open a bottle of this more-ish drop. Great Western is traditionally renowned for its Rieslings and Shiraz and the 2017 Riesling is up there with the best I've had not only from this region but Australia wide. There is a pleasant fizz at it hits the tongue combined with a lovely freshness and steely finish. We paired this wine with a three course Thai banquet. It complemented the soft shell crab entree' perfectly but also partnered brilliantly with our lamb massaman curry. The zesty lime freshness matching the Thai flavours wonderfully well. My only complaint was we only had one bottle. We could have easily enjoyed another with the banquet. Needless to say, next time we visit our local Thai restaurant I'll make sure we've stocked up. A stunning drop.

Clear, pale lemon colour in appearance with a citrus and floral filled nose. Upon tasting, I initially experienced an off-dry finish on the palate which quickly evolved into a delightful dry wine displaying lemon, lime and perhaps even crisp green apple characteristics. It went well with the spiced corn kernels we were snacking on as we sat inside enjoying the winter sun streaming thru the lounge room windows. This wine continued to evolve as we worked through the bottle, having left me curious to try it again!

We decided to chill this one just a little so to still appreciate the aromas. Gorgeous wine. The lime on the bouquet follows through on the palate and would easily compliment a spicy asian dish. That aside, its a wine that you can easily drink on its own on a hot summer afternoon. Lovely!
