96 Points - James Halliday
Best White Wine Trophy - 2021 Victorian Wine Show
Best's Great Western consistently produce aromatic, flavoursome and perfectly structured Rieslings that stand alongside Australia's great Riesling. This 2021 Best's Great Western Riesling is another top-line example, that was a dominant performer at the 2021 Victoria Wine Show, where is was awarded trophies for 'Best Riesling' and 'Best White Wine' of show.
Typically aromatic with notes of lime, nashi pear and jasmine, the palate is packed with zesty citrus, crunchy apple supported by a steely, acid backbone. A wine with proven ability to mature gracefully for 20 years or more, this is a sublime release that is deserving of the high praise it's already received.
"96 Points. As ever, a very distinguished riesling, its fluid power and the insistence of the palate results in exceptional length, crackling minerally acidity, married with lemon and lime fruit. Bargain. $25. 11% alc. Drink by 2036"- James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
"95 Points. Pale straw and youthful in appearance. Lifted and pure aromas of white flowers, citrus blossom and lemon rind - really inviting. The flavours are bright, lemony and tangy. There’s sherbet and talc, and a delightful acid zippiness and a generosity of flavour that carries through and gives impressive length. Drink now to 2036."- Aaron Brasher, The Real Review.
"Great Western Riesling. As I say every year: yes please. It’s just such a lovely wine to drink. It offers intensity and character in the most undemanding of ways: one sip and you’re off and away. Lime, talc and steel. A whisper of mandarin. And apple, green apple. Its beauty is effortless. 93 Points Tasted: Aug 21 11.5% alc. $25. Screwcap. Drink: 2021 - 2027+"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
