While Shiraz seems to take the lead in the Great Western’s red stakes, there’s pockets of elegance and intrigue with other varieties. Best’s have a few wines in this category with their Pinot Meunier and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Best’s Great Western, Cabernet Sauvignon, Great Western, 2015
From the very first opening there’s refreshing coolness, subtle black currant and black cherry aromas. Generosity of flavour yet with elegance and without reverting to sheer opulence or base sweet fruit for attractiveness. The twist of black olive is a welcome contrast. Integrated oak and easy tannin delivers the right punctuation to a long finish.
