Best’s Great Western Sparkling Shiraz was re- introduced at Best’s in 2006 after almost 40 years of absence. The sparkling Shiraz style is synonymous with Great Western and has been made in the region since the early 1900s.
Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. The base wine is left on yeast lees on bottle for 12 months or more and disgorged in the traditional method. This particular wine was left on lees for an extended period of two years which gives the wine a finer bead and greater complexity. The dosage liqueur for this wine contains a small quantity of very old Best’s Liqueur Muscat that gives the wine an added layer of interest and complements the style.
