Best's Great Western Bin 1 Shiraz 2014

I got lost for words momentarily and the pure sense of satisfaction won me over here. What an awesome drop for $25!

I have a thing for medium bodied Victorian Shiraz at the moment and this beauty ticks all the boxes.

After composing myself I just listed words: brambly, mulberry, violets, minerally, blueberry, dark chocolate, dried Mediterranean herbs, and a sprinkle of pepper to finish. Layers and layers of flavour, each veneer peeling back to reveal something else tucked away. Only classy wines can do this. The 14% alcohol is carried with poise. The soft fine tannin finish is long and moreish. Top me up again - please!

Will age for at least ten years.

Bargain hunters - drop this onto your must buy list. Wine lovers, do the same.

Excellent.
