Best's Great Western Riesling 2011 Victoria 11.5% 75cl
A flavoursome front palate displaying great varietal intensity, floral and zesty, with great aromatics. Minerality, balance and texture are working together harmoniously to produce a wine with great tension.
A winery steeped in Australian winemaking history, Bests has been creating wines in the Great Western region of Victoria for over 140 years. The winery is one of the countrys oldest continuously family owned and operated wineries, and owns some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the World, with one parcel dating back to the 1860s.
Now run by fourth generation winemaker Viv Thomson, he is creating wines of great depth, finesse and character, with a strong sense of place and history. All the fruit here is estate grown and benefits from the incredible vine age present across Bests vineyard sites, enabling the winemakers to create such finesse and focus within their wines. With bucket loads of intense character and depth of flavour, Bests Great Western Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Pinor Meunier and Riesling are some of Australias most exciting wines.
