2008 Best's Bin No. 1 Shiraz
Great Western - Grampians, Victoria
With the festive month now here it is time to finalise the shopping, both for presents and Christmas Day fare. A wine that will satisfy both requirements is the sensational Best's No. 1 Shiraz from Great Western.
With its classic grey and silver label it certainly makes an impressive gift, as well as being a classy companion to the Christmas turkey.
The wine is brimming with concentrated mulberry and ripe plum flavours and there is a hint of spice on the finish. I love the rose petal nuances and the velvety palate.
This is a wine of pedigree and finesse from one of Australia's oldest and most respected wineries.
Order direct or contact winery for stockist details.
