Pinot Noir, Best’s Great Western

The fruit for this wine comes from 1980 and 1987 Pinot Noir plantings in the Concongella vineyards, at Best’s Great Western and the 1997 plantings at the elevated vineyard at Rhymney.

Pinot Noir was first planted in the Nursery Block at Best’s in the 1860’s. It is believed that the origin of these vines goes back to the James Busby collection, Australia’s first vines, of which the Pinot Noir was sourced from some of the finest vineyards in Burgundy. The original Best’s plantings are now thought to be the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the world, and one of these clones is thought to exist nowhere else in the world.
