Wine of the Week AU

Best’s Great Western Bin No. 0 Shiraz 2016, Grampians, AUD $85

This is a majestic shiraz, powerful and dense, well-structured for ageing yet with amazingly complex detail and charm for such a youngster, with star anise, pepper and assorted spice aromas. It has great concentration and persistence. A top vintage of this famous wine. (Screwcap)
