Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lime, pear and green apple, along with some wet stone minerality. Medium bodied, dry with a hint of sweetness on the palate, vibrant fruit and mouthwatering acidity. Strong mineral hints on a crisp, clean finish. Enjoy with oysters.
Best's Great Western 2019 Riesling is simply gorgeous. From the Great Western wine region, this dry Australian Riesling is whole-berry, wild-fermented and rested on its lees for over six months. Look for exotic florals, ripe apricots, lemon-lime zest, petrol and mineral flavours on the palate. Intense and vibrant! Enjoy with a grilled pork tenderloin or veal schnitzels. - Community Wine Reviews
