Best's Wines Great Western Sparkling Shiraz 2016

Tasting Notes
The 2016 vintage release of the synonymous Bests Sparkling Shiraz from the Great Westerns is inky dark purple with a crimson hue. With an exuberant mousse that fills the glass. The rocky head of deep purple foam subsides to reveal a lace of small and persistent bubbles. Layers of aroma of roses, plum pudding, nutmeg, parmesan rind, blackberry and dark spices. Add in an undertone of meatiness and brioche from the lees contact in bottle and it demands to be tasted. The palate is broody and rich of fresh berries soaked in a spiced liqueur with a sprinkling of cocoa. The finish is seamless with a refreshing acidity and creamy effervescence to counterbalance the fruit.

Best’s Great Western Sparkling Shiraz was re- introduced at Best’s in 2006 after almost 40 years of absence. The sparkling Shiraz style is synonymous with Great Western and has been made in the region since the early 1900s.

Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. The base wine is left on yeast lees in bottle for 22 months or more and disgorged in the traditional method. The dosage liqueur for this wine contains a small quantity of very old Best’s Liqueur Muscat that gives the wine an added layer of interest and complements the style.

The vineyard set off to a rapid start with ideal conditions for budburst and a warm spring for fruit set. The summer was mainly warm and dry. There were a few hot spells, but adequate foliage ensured the vines remained in good health. The earlier than normal vintage period provided good ripening and harvest conditions with clear warm days that cooled off at night ensuring good natural acidity in the resultant wines. Winery Notes
