Best's Great Western Riesling 2019-White Wine-World Wine
Best's Great Western Riesling 2019

The Wine Front – Fundamentally delicious white wine. Lifted, floral, driven by citrus, soft on the tongue – and it lingers. Kaffir lime, red apple, curry leaf maybe, a spicy/chalky note. A delicate, minute sweetness helps ease the drive of the fruit. Any day, every day.


James Halliday – Bright straw-green, fuller than many of its vintage peers. The length of the palate is exceptional, as is the fluid line of the intertwined citrus fruit and acidity, lime and Meyer lemon fruit. The result is a riesling that will be drunk before its due time, and I would be happy to join forces tonight. 95 POINTS – James Halliday

Best's Bin 0 Shiraz 2016-Red Wine-World Wine
Best's Bin 0 Shiraz 2016

The Wine Front – I saw reference to “nori seaweed” as a descriptor for this wine in the accompanying press release. I was doubtful. Then I tasted it. You’ll never guess what happened next. Click here for clickbait of the customarily disappointing kind. The wine did indeed reference nori seaweed. And it was indeed part of its unique, dare-I-say-it tantalising appeal. This is shiraz as a class act. Cherried, plummy, minty, flushed with acidity, mid-weight and yet ultimately complex. It’s velvety, it tastes of chicory, kirsch and peppercorn, it is influenced by sweet, cedary, toasty oak and it’s firm with fine-grained tannin. It is ultra-young and has an ultra-long future ahead.

Best's Sparkling Shiraz 2015-Champagne & Sparkling-World Wine
Best's Sparkling Shiraz 2015

The Wine Front – It’s fresh, clean, mellow through the palate but then rich and sweet to close. It tastes of black cherry and boysenberry, mint and plum, though the finish then pours on toffee, chocolate and raisin notes. It shows some warmth, but the flavour pushes long. The dosage is probably a touch too high for my tastes but then I’d also reckon that it’s been finely tuned and balanced, and that’s hard to argue against. Pretty impressive all round. Some nice ‘florals’ here too.
