Bests LSV Great Western Shiraz
LSV is Little Smidge of Viognier, or Light Smattering of Viognier, or Less than Smart Vignerons. Anyway, there’s 2% Viognier in this powerful and dense Great Western Shiraz from the team at Best’s.
With deep, concentrated red and black fruits, and some hefty tannins, this is a bargain for hearty red lovers, a wine of real quality.
Best’s Great Western is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in the country.
Their iconic Nursery Block is home to some of the oldest clonal material for particular varieties that can be found anywhere in the world. Established in the late 1860s, this precious vineyard is envied by much of the wine growing world.
Their wines are consistently excellent: the Shiraz dark and powerful, the Rieslings full flavoured and impeccably balanced, and the rare releases of Old Vine Meunier and Thomson Family Shiraz are some of the most collectable red wines in the country.
The Thomson family, and the Best family before them, have given us one of the true treasures of the Australian wine scene.
