Best’s Sparkling Shiraz 2018, Great Western, Victoria

by | Jan 25, 2022

2 years on lees with 17 gm/litre of residual sugar. Black cherry with a hint of jammy confectionary fruits. Palate retains its dryness due to a nice acid balance. Creamy palate that is elegant and fruit driven sitting still in the cherry, cola spectrum. Medium bodied and finish. Good representation of this traditional wine style for Great Western.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
