James Halliday

"There is something comforting in a Best's vintage sparkling shiraz, a sense that traditions run deep in this part of the world. May it never change. Intense, deep purple in hue with a lively mousse. A little reserved after disgorgement with emerging blackcurrant pastille, black cherry, anise, sarsaparilla aromas. Bows to the modern style which is dry with a light savouriness and keeps a steady, lively pulse of acidity and bubble. A charmer."

Huon Hooke

(2016 vintage) "Deep, bold, dark colour. The bouquet shows earthy, smoky, black fruits, smoky charcuterie and black olive or tapenade notes. The palate is very full-bodied and solid, dense, concentrated and robust, with lashings of supple tannins and a lovely dry-but-soft finish thanks to moderate sweetness and well-tailored tannins. A benchmark sparkling red."

Mike Bennie

(2016 vintage) "Mature flavours, woody spice, toasty, dark berries, kirsch. Rich scents and flavours here, a bold sparkling red. Layers of flavour, quite intense actually, quite vinous but with a very good and vigorous bubble trail. Finishes fresh yet thick set. It’s very good. Very."
