Best’s Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


Categories: ,

The Great Western range of wines represents an ideal introduction to the unique style of Great Western wine. These accessibly priced wines show detailed aromatic qualities set within a medium-bodied framework. The ‘continental’ climate, relatively unique in Australia, defined by cold nights and warm afternoons, means the fruit grown in Great Western develops flavours slowly through the day, building intense varietal aromas and characters.

If our Great Western region were somehow prohibited from growing Shiraz, it would probably be just as famous for its Cabernets. 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.

Cabernet Sauvignon from Great Western is even better when the fruit is grown at the right sites. Warm north-facing sites tend to produce the best fruit. As is common in other regions, Cabernet Sauvignon in Great Western is picked late in the vintage season to allow for good fruit flavour and texture. More time on the vine results in a supple wine with intense varietal characteristics.

Like all our Best’s Great Western wines, the Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable on release and makes for a great partner to many dishes. Our booklet ‘A Food and Wine Journey’ suggests a rich, slow-roasted pork dish.
