The more we considered this wine's monumental achievement a fortnight ago at the Royal Queensland Wine Show and the more we looked at our offer price, the more and more we purchased. Not only did the Norfolk Rise Shiraz 2015 rate 96 Points - the only Shiraz to attain that mark in the entire wine show - it won the Top Gold Medal in its class and then went on to beat home over 430 Shiraz to win the Trophy for Best Shiraz of Show. Just to reiterate, the Trophy was not price or vintage based but simply the best Shiraz exhibited at Royal Queensland, the first capital city wine show of the year.

Now, 96 Points, Top Gold and Best Shiraz Trophy is one thing - after all, there has to be a winner - but what are the chances that of the 400+ Shiraz exhibited and including the likes of ($100) Lehmann Stonewall, ($90) McWilliams 1877 and ($80) Seppelt St Peters, just to name a few medal winners, the winning wine can be offered at a lower price than all others? Gorgeous wine, crowd pleasing style, absolute no brainer bargain!

Norfolk Rise has most definitely pulled a rabbit out of a hat here. It’s a ripping wine. It’s savoury and herbal and all those good things, quite bunchy and stemmy you could say, but it’s also poured with pure, deep, ripe fruit, all plum-shot and black cherried and meaty. It’s the kind of wine that just glides through the mouth, all satiny and sure, though the thing is: it’s also struck with smoky, spicy tannin, and a good deal of it. In short, you would never pick it as an $18 wine. It has all the characters and qualities of a $40+ wine. There’s little wonder it’s also caused a stir on the show circuit.
