Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz 2006

In and amongst other such varied topics as wounded birds, figs, and his contemporaries around Great Western, I had a good discussion with affable young winemaker Adam Wadewitz about the jasmine/apricot fragrance of this wine …and suffice to say there’s no Viognier in it – he’s an entirely sensible sort of chap. I’d love to have tasted this over a couple of days using proper glasses, rather than the ISO’s I hurriedly used. Still, here’s the note.

A floral aspect, like jasmine or apricot jam, makes a positive contribution to the fragrance of this wine. It’s regionally spiced with good coffee/vanilla oak and rich juicy blackberry fruit. Medium to full bodied, squeaky clean, full of firm grainy tannins that run dry onto the long finish. There’s a meaty savoury flavour too, along with liquorice as it opens up. Terrific wine.
