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 vines that produce intense flavours. 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 the Great Western shiraz style for many decades. It is internationally
acclaimed as one of Australia’s great Shiraz wines.
The esteemed Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine upgraded Bin
No. 0 Shiraz in Classification V 2010 from ”Distinguished” to “Excellent”
