The 2012 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy winner is an elegant, medium to full-bodied shiraz with white-pepper, fragrant spice and raspberry aromas. Pristine cleanness and freshness; fine-grained tannins and a lingering farewell. A lovely wine that's high on drinkability. Best's bottled only one '11 shiraz, which includes the old-vine grapes. Now to 2035. 14 per cent alcohol.
Food: Stews and casseroles.
