Best’s Great Western Bin 0 Shiraz 2006

91++ points

Great Western, Victoria. 14.1%

A Victorian Grange style. Personally I’d have preferred a little less oak, extraction, tannin, acid. But it’s a favoursome, powerful, stylish package.

Compared to the Penfold’s Barossa wine this shows its difference in terroir (and French oak). Tighter, cooler shiraz flavour.
