Tasting Note

Spicy, berry, leafy aromas and long, dense, yet supple flavours and classic structure are all hallmarks of Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon. With age, these wines develop remarkable finesse and elegance.

Food Matching

A rich, slow-roasted pork dish.

REVIEWS

James Halliday, August 2016
‘Still a pup, but all the signs are excellent. Arms of minted blackcurrant; chubby legs of tannin; vanillin oak covering the belly. It’s still growing into itself but the fruit feels so pure you’d almost label it sincere; it hasn’t learned its tricks yet, but when it does, it will fascinate.’
Rating 95 Points

Australian Wine Review, Oct 2015
‘This is probably the most Great Western and least Cabernet Sauvignon Best's Cab in some years, to the point where you could almost confuse this with the Shiraz on first glance. That's not such a bad thing, really, depending on what you're looking for. This looks very young, bright purple coloured and fresh, the nose all purple fruit, the mid-weight palate ripe and well placed, even though the finish looks rather dried out and a bit tough. A pretty solid wine though, if desperate for bottle age and better than many previous vintages. Will live and go even longer than the Shiraz to boot. ‘Drink: 2017-2028.

'The back label claims, “If Great Western didn’t grow such great Shiraz, it would probably be just as famous for its cabernet sauvignon.” Not sure on that claim, but this is unique and not in a bad way. Leafy, moist tobacco, crushed blackberries and pencil shavings.’

Tony Keys, January 2016
‘It is its own style of cabernet and rather wonderful for being so. The family resemblance is there but there is also individuality. It’s very smooth and stretches in a lazy fashion like a classic beauty on a chaise lounge. 94 points and incredibly cheap at $25.’

James Halliday 2019 Wine Companion

86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and some Shiraz and Cabernet Franc.  Strong crimson-purple; puer, intense and long, cassis to the fore, black olive and firm but ripe tannins.  Best's is having a ball.  Rating: 95 Points
