As big fans of wine, it’s our duty to share with you the very best from around the world, especially if it’s light on your wallet.

Delish reports that a £13 bottle of wine from Norfolk, England, which roughly evens out to about $14 USD, has been crowned one of the best in the world.

Of the more than 17,000 entries, Winbirri Vineyards’ Bacchus 2015 was awarded the Platinum Best in Show accolade at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2017.

According to Winbirri, their wine is the “perfect aperitif” and is praised for being “well-defined on the palate with grassy notes.” Its taste can be described as “very elegant and delicate with a slight spritz and a long, clean finish.” Wine lovers will also be able to sense floral characters and tropical fruits in every sip.

Winbirri’s head winemaker Lee Dyer told the Eastern Daily Press that Norfolk’s weather played a great hand in securing the honor as the Bacchus grape favors the drier autumnal conditions seen in the area.

“Norfolk has so much potential as a wine region, particularly when it comes to still wines,” Dyer said. “I think Bacchus has to be the jewel in the crown and, more importantly, for my site as it just works so well here. The flavor profiles and aromas we can achieve here from our vines are second to none.”

Winbirri’s Bacchus 2015 can be found in select wine and beer stores as an import, prices may vary.
