The 2006 Royal Sydney Wine Show saw Thorn-Clarke once again feature strongly when it came to awarding trophys. Our 2004 Shotfire Ridge Shiraz was awarded a gold medal and the Trophy for the top wine in Class 36 – Premium Dry Red Wine Full Bodied. This award is on the back of a 91/100 rating in the February edition of the highly regarded American magazine Wine Spectator and a 92/100 from Robert Parker in his October issue of Wine Advocate.
The 2004 Shotfire Ridge Quartage was also awarded a gold medal (second highest score) in Class 35 – Premium Dry Red Medium Bodied. This wine has now been awarded 4 gold medals and 4 trophies at Australian wine shows since September!
The Silver awarded to the 2004 Sandpiper Shiraz in Class 6 is testimony to the outstanding value for money this wine represents also.
