The bulk of Best's 2017 Great Western Shiraz Bin No 0 comes from vines that were planted between 1966 and 1970. Crushed stone, black olives and boysenberries appear on the nose, which bears a distinct similarity to something off the granite sites of Saint-Joseph or Cote Rotie. It's medium-bodied and streamlined in the mouth, boasting a certain granite-like austerity to its structure, while still having fine-grained, ripe tannins and a long, silky and spice-infused finish.

This has an array of wild red berries with a gently creamy edge to the palate that carries long, plush and silky tannin in a fine, precise style. Salty mineral kick at the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Rated 92 by Wine Enthusiast
This historic winery, established in 1866, is located in the cool climes of the Grampians in Victoria, west of Melbourne. This is its reserve wine, and while its more affordable LSV is actually a more characterful wine, this is a serious drop intended for cellaring. For now, it's initially reductive, needing plenty of air before revealing a multifaceted nose of plums, currants, orange peel, anise, dried flowers and stones, along with underlying earthy, almost meaty nuances. In typical cool-climate fashion, the acidity on the palate soars, lifting the fruit and spice. Tannins are still chunky and need time to integrate into the wine. Drink 2021-2029.

Varietal: Syrah

The Shiraz or Syrah grape varietal has seen a huge surge in popularity over the past few decades, partly due to the fact that more and more wineries around the world are beginning to plant and process this robust and flavorful grape for international audiences. This varietal has plenty going for it, and has the special ability of being able to clearly express positive features of its terroir in the bottle, alongside its characteristic flavors of dark berries, pepper and other spices. Shiraz/Syrah is also notably a highly versatile grape, and has been successfully used in several type of still red wine, as well as excellent sparkling and fortified wines. It is also regularly used as a blending grape, where it is prized for its ability to add a bold and strong, spicy punch to mellow, blended wines.

Region: Victoria

The Australian region of Victoria is the country's most historically significant wine region, with vine cultivation and wine production going on there since the mid 19th century. In those times, Victoria produced over half of all Australia's wines. However, today, despite having a huge number of wineries, Victoria has begun to focus on quality over quantity – many of the six hundred wineries based in this region produce wines made from lesser known grape varietals, often producing fascinating wines full of character, but made from vines with far lower yields and a considerably smaller audience. Today, most of the viticulture in Victoria takes place near the cool, coastal region around Melbourne. However, recent years have seen irrigation projects help wine makers grow vines in the more arid parts of the region, with a wide range of grapes now being grown.

Country: Australia

Despite much of Australia being covered by dry, arid deserts and bushland, the southern regions of the country and islands such as Tasmania have proved to be ideal for vineyard cultivation and wine production. The fertile soils and brisk oceanic breezes, coupled with the blazing Australian sunshine allow the grapes to grow to full ripeness before a late harvest, resulting in hugely flavorful wines which appeal to a wide international audience. Combine this with the experimental and daring approach Australian wineries have in regards to wine production, and it becomes clear why Australia has relatively quickly become something of a world leader when it come to exporting their produce to Europe and America. The Shiraz and Chardonnay grape varietals have produced the most successful and broadly appreciated results over the decades, however, in more recent years wineries have begun experimenting with a much wider range of grape varietals, demonstrating how Australian wineries are continuing to adapt and develop alongside international palates.
