Intense velvety dark fruit restrained by fine crumbly tannins. The balance of
perfumed fruit, tight grained oak and minerality lingers in the mouth. An
excellent example of Bin 0 that will benefit from some more time in bottle.

Critic Scores & reviews
"A great bottle of this superb wine. Youthful but gloriously complex, showing intense fruit, licorice, aniseed, rich and concentrated. Power and heft. Tremendous wine. Has many years ahead of it."
"Vibrant and lustrous, this deeply perfumed and elegant shiraz has a heady, almost pinot-like bouquet of violets, sweet small red and black berries, cherries knit tightly with fine-grained aromatic vanilla and backed by nuances of cloves and musk. Long and seamless, it's polished and smooth, medium to full-bodied, with a complex, reductive expression of bright, jujube-like fruit backed by smoky, meaty influences and underpinned by smooth al dente tannins. It finishes with dusty, stalky undertones and is likely to build in weight with time in the bottle."
"Crimson-purple; a very high quality wine made from a mix of old and younger vines matured in French oak. A great definition of what a medium-bodied shiraz should present. A fragrant bouquet of plum, black cherry and a touch of blackberry sliding seamlessly into a perfectly moulded palate, delivering all of the flavours promised by the bouquet, tannins and oak in precisely tailored amounts."

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.
Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.
Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.
With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.
The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.
There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

About the brand Best's Wines
James Halliday calls Best's "among Australia's best-kept secrets". Now in its 5th generation, Best's, founded in 1866 by British brothers Joseph and Henry Best is one of the country's oldest family owned wineries. When the brothers relocated from Melbourne to Ararat to try their luck in the Victorian Gold Rush, they soon noted instead the profit of the wine growers in the area. With a new focus, they planted their first vines in 1865, making them amongst the oldest in Australia.
Best's winemaker Justin Purser, having worked vintages in New Zealand, Central Otago, Piedmont, Italy and most recently, the Cote d'Or in Burgundy crafts his blends using non-interventionist winemaking, with most of the effort focused on producing quality fruit in the vineyard to start with. Though they feature a wide range of interesting varietals including the likes of Dolcetto and Pinot Meunier, Best's fame lies in their many expressions of Shiraz.
