Aussie Wine Month - Best's Great Western Cabernet

2013 Best’s Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon


Bright magenta with a ruby red intensity.

A delightful fruit bomb with perfumed red and dark berries over light spicy oak. Very intense & interesting!

This wine is a pleasure on the palate with rich varietal fruit, soft acidity and fine powdery tannins. Creating a medium bodied Cabernet that can easily be enjoyed now and will complement any winter’s night.

“Perfect by the fire on a Friday night!” – Amelia (Direct & Digital Marketing Manager)


In the great Grampians of Victoria lies the small sub-region called Great Western, a wine growing region well known for its silky smooth Shiraz. The Great Western boasts a continental climate which is defined by cold night and warms days, creating intense varietal characteristics and ideal ripening conditions. The soils range from hard setting slit over clay to friable clay loams, perfect to retain moisture in a region with low rainfall.

Compared to Margaret River the Great Western has a distinctly different climate which creates a fine medium bodied wine with a leaner structure than we have come to know and love in a Margaret River Cabernet. This medium bodied style has lovely rich varietal fruit and makes for a very enjoyable and approachable young wine.


Our winemaking philosophy at Best’s is that great wines are made in the vineyard.  Even while practicing a minimalist approach, attention to detail is key. At Best’s, we avoid the overpowering use of oak or additional treatments. Instead, we prefer to let the fantastic fruit from Great Western tell the story.
