Shiraz has been produced at Best’s Great Western since the late 1800s, although the actual date of the first Bin 0 Shiraz is lost in the annuals of time. What is certain is that Bin 0 as a descriptor on the wine label has been in use for over 100 years. Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz is produced from the four original Shiraz plantings in the low yielding blocks of the historic Concongella vineyard at Great Western. This includes nineteenth century and mid twentieth century plantings of Shiraz which result in very low yielding, intense vines. The fruit is hand-selected, sorted and fermented in small-batches and matured in the finest barrels in our underground cellar. 

Bin 0 is made to be an age worthy style and has been the undisputed icon of the Great Western shiraz style for many decades. It is internationally acclaimed as one of Australia’s great Shiraz wines. 

Deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is savoury and dried-spicy, dried-herbal, with star anise and mixed spice overtones. Very complex indeed. The wine is concentrated and powerful, with tremendously detailed flavour including lots of spice and a hint of pepper. A thoroughly majestic wine of boundless complexity and persistence, all hung on an impressively authoritative structure. Drink: 2018 to 2046; Price: $85.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

Gold Medal - Royal Adelaide Wine Show 2018 

A great vintage of this famous wine, powerfully concentrated and densely flavoured with a bouquet of complex spices, dried herbs and black fruits with black pepper and star anise highlights. A big, dense wine with a long future; it’s very complex at this tender age. Rating: 97 Points; Australian Gourmet Traveller; WINE Magazine

This is a majestic shiraz, powerful and dense, well-structured for ageing yet with amazingly complex detail and charm for such a youngster, with star anise, pepper and assorted spice aromas. It has great concentration and persistence. A top vintage of this famous wine. Ranked: #1 of 54 2016 Shiraz from Victoria; Rating: 97 Points ★★★★★ Wine of the Week; Huon Hooke

This is youthfully fresh, unevolved and vividly fragrant on the nose with plenty of peppers across blackberries and dark cherries. The palate has a deeply spicy thread, running through rich blackberries and red and dark plums. The tannins are beautifully tailored through the finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Rating: 96 Points; James Suckling's Top 100 Australian Wines of 2018

Vines planted 1868, 1966, ‘70 and ‘92, hand-picked and sorted, open-fermented with 25% whole bunches, matured for 17 months in French oak (20% new). There should be no doubt that this is absolutely of world quality. It ticks each and every box with its deep colour, evocative bouquet smelling of ‘old money’ (in wine terms), a long and velvety palate, the finish simply wanting you to start the process over again. Drink to: 2046; Price: $75.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2018; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
