Best's Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon from Best's is deep magenta with a bright purple hue. Typical aromas of cassis and blackcurrant are intertwined with woody notes of thyme, nutmeg and fresh tobacco leaf. Rich briary fruit flavours flow with the fine geometry of supple tannins and balancing acidity to give a long finish. This youthful wine is a great expression of the variety in Great Western. It is possible to enjoy this wine now with food, but it will soften and gain complexity over the next 5- 20 years. It is the perfect accompaniment to a seared fillet steak with mushroom sauce.
One of the greatest things about the Great Western wine region is its ability to successfully grow a broad range of grape varieties. Shiraz may be the regional hero, but Cabernet Sauvignon from the area can lay almost equal claim.
Best’s 2019 Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon is a fine example of the Great Western Regional style; showing rich, mocha and berry fruit with a solid mid-palate weight thanks to superbly concentrated fruit.
2019 vintage saw a warm, dry growing season meant the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and some February rain gave the vines a well- deserved drink and freshened them up before the grapes were harvested.
