The $20 Australian wine which has been named the world's best drop

An Australian $20-a-bottle shiraz has been named the world’s best, giving Aussies a chance to sample the top drop at an affordable price.

Taylors Wines, based in South Australia’s Clare Valley wine region, received the gong for the most awarded winery in this year’s Association of Wine Writers and Journalists’ world raking of wine and spirit.

The Jaraman 2014 was awarded the best shiraz globally, selling for just $20.09 at Dan Murphy’s.

Mitchell Taylor, managing director of the Australian family vineyard, called the accolade an “honour”.

“We are incredibly proud to be recognised as the world’s most awarded winery as well as the world’s most awarded wine.

“Since the beginning we’ve sought to make wines that can take on the best in the world.”
