Today is the day that the Perth Royal Wine Show releases their trophies. It has again been a great year for Western Australia, but the stand out performance in our minds is Houghton 2015 Shiraz which has just won FOUR awards at Yesterday's Perth Royal Wine Show: 

  • Best shiraz
  • Best 2015 wine
  • Best West Australian red wine
  • Best red wine of the show

For a wine that we retail at just $9.99 everyday this is an unbelievable achievement and re-confirms to us how brilliant the wines from Houghton are.
 
So, we can once again confirm what we already know - Ray has a great palate so keep an eye on his recommendations. Read more about Ray's Top 100 Red of 2017 here.

Ray rated this wine 91/100 describing it as ‘Nice Medium-bodied shiraz. Plummy with some light cedar and deeper blackberry nuances. Fine supple tannins and a light touch of oak to complete’. 

Get into your local Liquor Barons today as stocks of Houghton 2015 Shiraz are in extremely limited supply – and because we have always trusted Ray, we have the majority of the stock available in the market at our stores.
