" A wealth of fragrant raspberries, red plums and peppery, cool-climate shiraz characters sit for all to behold on the nose, and there's a handy earthy nuance, too. The palate's bathed in cool-climate blackberry and plum flavors as well as plenty of licorice and sarsaparilla. What great depth and the peppery finish and shimmery, glossy tannins hold long and flawless. Drink now through to 2024. "

Product Description:

"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." -Winery
