2017 Best’s Great Western Bin 0 Shiraz Great Western – Shiraz has been produced at Best’s Great Western since the late 1800s, although the actual date of the first Bin 0 Shiraz is lost in the annuals of time. What is certain is that Bin 0 as a descriptor on the wine label has been in use for over 100 years. Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz is produced from the four original Shiraz plantings in the low yielding blocks of the historic Concongella vineyard at Great Western. This includes nineteenth century and mid twentieth century plantings of Shiraz which result in very low yielding, intense vines. The fruit is hand-selected, sorted and fermented in small-batches and matured in the finest barrels in our underground cellar.
Bin 0 is made to be an age worthy style and has been the undisputed icon of Great Western Shiraz for many decades. It is internationally acclaimed as one of Australia’s great Shiraz wines.
A layered and complex bouquet of blackberry, exotic spices, pastille, dried flowers, black pepper and dark cocoa.
The palate is medium bodied with plush, slippery dark cherry fruits and fine long graphite tannins swirled with some tasty oak.
A classic Bin 0 that will drink well now with food, but will benefit from some more time in bottle. Will reward both short term to long term cellaring (15 years+). Try it with a Mutton Cassoulet and creamy mashed potatoes.
