Description

A unique Australian wine, Best’s Great Western Sparkling Shiraz was re-introduced at Best’s in 2006 after a 20-year absence. Part of our proud history, the sparkling Shiraz style is synonymous with the Great Western and has been made in the region since the early 1900s. Releasing a sparkling version of Best’s famous Shiraz was a natural progression and a great opportunity for Best’s Great Western to refine the style of sparkling Shiraz from the region.

Great Western produces grapes that are exceptionally well suited to the Sparkling Shiraz style. During the process of reincarnating this style in the mid-2000s, Best's owner and patriarch Viv Thomson, as well as Ian Mackenzie (formerly Winemaker at Seppelt Great Western) were consulted to ensure the wine reflected the origins from whence it came, but also was characteristic of the regional style.

Bouquet: Very pungent aromatics of cracked pepper, salted liquorice, blackberries and potpourri. Secondary notes of toasted nuts, fermented meats, and pulverized rock from maturation in barrel and on lees in bottle.

Palate: Vibrant and flesh forest fruits with a soft and creamy mouthfeel and a spicy floral finish. Try it with roast Turkey and all the trimmings or at a barbeque with family and friends.
