Nothing but the Best’s The Great Western region of Victoria has been a wine producing region for over 150 years. It is a pocket of land surrounded by the townships of Moyston, Stawell and Ararat with wineries such as Best’s, Seppelts, Garden Gully, Kimbara Wines and Westgate Vineyard within the GI zone. Best’s was established in 1866 by Henry Best from Surrey, England, who spent some of his early years in the Deloraine area. The winery remained in the family until it was sold to William Thomson in 1920. Now the 5th generation of Thomsons are r unning this remarkable vineyard. Their wine making philosophy has always been that great wines are made in the vineyard. The current winemaker Adam Wadewitz continues to respect the traditional winemaking practices which have served Best’s well for over a century. He has been responsible for many important initiatives including introduction of a new basket press and a new bottling line and he has overhauled the oak regime. Grapes are hand picked and whole-bunch-pressed using natural yeast during fer mentation. His philosophy of only using French oak with Shiraz and his careful use of new and used oak depending on the vintage has brought new acclaim to the already established echelon of Best’s red wines. The Thomson Family Shiraz has been crafted with the best fruit and wood that is possible, producing a wine of great depth and ageing potential. The Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz is also recognised as a fine Great Wester n Shiraz. They produce a Pinot Noir from the block and similarly make a long-living and fascinating w ine from the old vines of Pinot Meunier, a variety that is used predominantly for Champagne production. Best’s have what are believed to be the world’s oldest pre-phylloxera Pinot Noir vines. Our feature dozen this issue includes three bottles each of Old Vine Pinot Meunier, Old Clone Pinot Noir, Great Wester n Caber net Sauvignon and Great Western Bin 0 Shiraz. A fascinating selection and mouth watering selection for wine lovers! David Johnstone, SJW Senior Judge of Wine 48 June / July 2011
