Australia's best shiraz wines under $15
ALDI's One Road Shiraz has done it again! Following its Double Gold win at the Melbourne International Wine competition earlier this year, the $6.99 Shiraz has taken out Gold in the 2017 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge.
It was among a swag of budget-friendly wines that featured in the Trophy and Gold sections.
Robert Oatley Vineyards won the 2017 Saint Martin Oak Great Australian Shiraz Challenge Trophy with its 2015 Four in Hand Barossa Shiraz, priced at $22.
The wine was produced in tribute to Robert Oatley Vineyards’ founder, the late Robert (Bob) Oatley’s personal love of modern Australian shiraz.
"Our father would be especially proud of this award,” said Bob Oatley’s eldest son, Executive Chairman Andrew (Sandy) Oatley (above), “as it is a great value wine, that reflects modern wine drinkers’ tastes.
"To do so well with a wine under $30 makes great wine available to the broader wine loving public, which can only be a good thing.”
