Natalie's Score: 92/100

Blackberry and fleshy black plum aromas on the nose with some mint, and a savoury mouth-watering note on the palate. Full-bodied and generous. Supple and smooth. Grilled pork chops please! This wine is robust yet it also has terrific balance, the result of its cool-climate origins. This wine will go the distance.

Shiraz food pairings: pork chops, grilled radicchio, beef prosciutto, black bean soup, blue cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This wine continues to punch significantly above its price point, vintage in and vintage out. The 2014 is absolutely sublime, featuring lots of purple and black fruit, mint, eucalyptus, a hint of meat blood or game, with dried flowers coming through after some time in the glass. Ribeye, ribeye, ribeye. 93 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful nose of rich dark fruit, full bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark fruit, black pepper, cedar and vanilla, licorice and mint. Beautiful balance and structure. Decanting recommended.
Perry rated this wine as 90/100
Best's Bin No. 1 is great value for $20. From the Great Western wine region, this robust Shiraz is plummy, minty with full-bodied blackberry and black fruit goodness. Great balance and acidity, this wine can cellar for about 10 years, but buy a case (or two) in case you want to taste and see how its maturing. - Community Wine Reviews
