Founded in 1866 in Great Western, Best's are a family-owned and operated winery with some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world. Henry Best’s original Nursery Block, containing more than 40 different varieties and featuring his old Shiraz and Pinot Meunier plantings, are among Australia’s most valuable vineyard resources.
Chardonnay was one of the first varietals planted in the Concongella Vineyard in the 1970s, even though cuttings were extremely hard to come by at the time. Chardonnay is picked early to ensure good acidity and to retain the fine aromatics and flavours of the variety.
Available from the Great Western Hotel at $35 a bottle or $10 a glass
