“With our first beginnings in 1866, Best’s Wines Great Western boasts a historic collection of Australia’s oldest and most significant vineyards. For more than 150 years, we’ve been proudly producing world-class wines in Victoria’s Great Western region.”
Of the noble grape varieties, Syrah may have the oldest geography and history. The vines origins are thought to date back to one of the world’s earliest wine-producing regions, the city of Shiraz in the Middle East. Now worshipped in the Rhône Valley in France, these dark, dense, and powerful wines can be just as distinct as Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ll find this grape also largely grown in Australia, where it is identifiable as Shiraz. Sometimes known to be “meaty,” think exotic spices and darker meat dishes to help showcase the complexity of these wines. Syrah needs time to show its greatness, but when it does, you’ll be thankful you had a bottle!
A warm and dry, large country with multiple geographical areas specializing in different varieties of wine. Australia is an extremely important wine producing country in terms of its scale, economy, and quality. It is the sixth largest wine producer in the world. The vast size and range of climatic and geographical conditions makes Australia a very versatile wine-growing country. Here is where the coined term “Shiraz” was named after their unique taste of Syrah wines. There are six important wine growing “states”: Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and Tasmania. In South Australia, Barossa Valley, you’ll find a focus on Shiraz and Riesling. Particularly, Eden Valley and Clare Valley specializing in top-quality Riesling. Western Australia’s Margaret River is a prime region for Chardonnay and Bordeaux blends. Victoria, much cooler from the coastal influence, is making fruity Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In New South Wales, Hunter Valley, you’ll find age-worthy Syrah and Sémillon. Last, but certainly not least, Tasmania is pulling out graceful Pinot Noir and sparkling wines.
This wine is all about bright flavors, approachability, and thirst-quenching freshness. The flavor lingers, but the wine goes down fast. It is Marlborough, New Zealand to a Sauvy B TEE!

Sauvignon Blanc lovers, don’t sleep on Bordeaux Blanc. Vinified with a bit of Sémillon, these textured and thirst-quenching wines are some of the most underrated, budget-friendly bottles on the market. Next time the mood for SB strikes, give Bordeaux a whirl – you’ll thank us later.

This is an incredibly pleasant and interesting wine with hints of citrus & stone fruit, sweet smoke and hazelnut. The depth of flavor continues for an impressively long finish that never stops developing. Drink now or lay down for another 5-10 years. This wine has the structure to age, but is drinking beautifully now as well.
This wine would be wonderful with a buttery, lobster linguine topped with lemon and fresh herbs.
