Winner of The Jimmy Watson Trophy 2012
Victorian Trophy for Best Wine 2012
Inaugural Trevor Mast Trophy – Best Shiraz, 2012 Royal Melbourne Wine Show

Garnet, ruby, and a tinge of tawny on the rim. Blackcurrant, eucalypt and mint. Complete with a whiff of sandalwood. Evolved, elegant fruit delivered by soft tannins with a gentle grip on the finish. Freshness, finesse and harmony. Medium-bodied.  The winner of the 2012 Jimmy Watson Trophy – Australia’s most prestigious wine prize – is a classy Shiraz. If you expect a full-bodied Shiraz like Penfolds Grange, you will be disappointed. However, if you are searching for a subtle and refined Syrah, you will be amply rewarded.

Best’s Winery and vineyards are among Australia’s best-kept secrets. Indeed the vineyards, with vines dating back to 1867, have secrets which may never be revealed: for example, certain vines planted in the Nursery Block have defied identification and are thought to exist nowhere else in the world. The cellars, too, go back to the same era, constructed by butcher turned wine maker Henry Best and his family”
