"aromatic nose, with sweet red and black fruits and a touch of cedar from oak. While just medium-bodied, it;'s rich and plump in the mouth with wonderful presence. Otton found, "Charcuterie, pot pourri and red plum. Bold, but good balance." A Victorian classic."

There may be no other winery that defines the essence of Australia more than Best’s Great Western; family, history, truly unique wines, and its own region. Founded in 1866 by Henry Best, it has been managed by the Thomson family for six generations, including 50+ vintages by the current patriarch, Viv. These special wines form a true national treasure of our industry.

Shiraz has been produced at Best’s Great Western since the late 1800s, although the actual date of the first Bin 0 Shiraz is lost in the annuals of time. What is certain is that Bin 0 as a descriptor on the wine label has been in use for over 100 years. Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz is produced from the four original Shiraz plantings in the low yielding blocks of the historic Concongella vineyard at Great Western. This includes nineteenth century and mid twentieth century plantings of Shiraz which result in very low yielding, intense vines. The fruit is hand-selected, sorted and fermented in small-batches and matured in the finest barrels in our underground cellar. Bin 0 is made to be an age worthy style and has been the undisputed icon of Great Western Shiraz for many decades. It is internationally acclaimed as one of Australia’s great Shiraz wines.
