Thorn-Clarke Wines


James Halliday’s Wine Companion scores released

Well, another year has gone by and another round of Wine Companion results have been released.  The 2019 Wine Companion has seen Thorn-Clarke Wines retain the 5 Star rating for the thirteenth consecutive year. That’s not bad considering we have only been selling wine for 18 years!

We have also retained our red star rating! The red star rating is the next step up from a 5 star rating and is a sign of exemplary quality. To achieve this rating you need consistency through your wines and you will also need to have two wines rated at 95 points or above.

The list below shows all the scores we have received from Halliday’s team of reviewers for the 2019 edition of the Wine Companion. Unfortunately some of these wines have sold out, but we do still have a few left!
