Best's Bin 1 Shiraz 2017 (Great Western)

Tasting Notes
Best's Great Western Bin 1 Shiraz 2017 is a deep magenta with a garnet hue.

An explosion of aromas- pepper, aniseed, cocoa, rosé petals, plum and black olives- all vying for attention. A background of bay leaf and nutty oak adds to the complexity.

Plush and rounded red and blue fruit flavours leap forward and circle the tongue. The medium bodied richness is highlighted with pops of savoury pepper then drawn out to a long finish with fine powdery tannins.

This vibrant and finely structured wine is great to enjoy now with food but will soften and gain complexity over the next 10 years. Ideal to drink with rare eye fillet steak and all the trimmings.

Best’s Great Western as a Shiraz ‘house’, has gathered experience with the variety through the legacy of Best’s long winemaking history dating back to 1866. Bin 1 Shiraz is the wine that often gives people an introduction to the regional style of Great Western Shiraz.

Made predominantly from Best’s own vineyards and meticulously crafted with the same attention to detail as the Icon wines, Bin 1 Shiraz represents the essence of Best’s winemaking ideals and the uniqueness of the Great Western region.

Bin 1 is a classic, cool climate, aromatic Shiraz, made in a style that is perfumed, spicy and peppery, yet well balanced with no overt dominance of alcohol. It’s a great match with food - particularly dishes like spring lamb.

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 vintage that has more resemblance to those of the 80s and 90s than the vintages of this century.

Reviews
"Best’s Bin 1 Shiraz, not to be confused with Best’s Bin 0.

I looked at this over three days and a) it didn’t show an inch of oxidation at any stage, and b) all it really did throughout that time was turn increasingly elegant. On the first day I consumed a glass and was surprised at how rich and ripe it seemed; I found myself apologising to my cool-climate-loving friends (they’re Victorians, you know) for serving something so fruit dominant. Of course, they looked at me non-plussed (or with ambivalence, I’m always confusing the two). When I came back the next day and then the day after what really impressed me was the finesse of the tannin, and how seamlessly it sits in the wine. This is a wine of the spotless kind, a trait we can eternally appreciate. Berries mostly, red, blue and black; a hint of florals, some garden mint, the merest suggestion of twigs. It felt glossy and polished at first but over the course it seemed to resemble Best’s shiraz more than anything; it just has that cool-but-warm flow; drinking it is like taking a midday stroll in Spring. The t-shirt I would have printed for this wine simply says: It’s not hard to be a fan."
