Penfolds Grange leads Barossa Wine Chapters Auction

A six-litre imperial of Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz 2010 led The Barossa Wine Chapters Auction to a record sale of AU$62,910, it has been announced.

Presented by the Barossa Grape & Wine Association and supported by Langton’s Fine Wines, the auction also included a live auction section on 21 April, saw a total of 190 lots (30 live lots and 160 online lots) from Barossa’s most prestigious and renowned wineries go under the hammer; led by auctioneer Andrew Caillard MW.

The total amount realised over the course of the sale was AU$245,000.

Streamed globally to bidders in Hong Kong and Australia, the auction set many records including a bottle of Penfolds Bin 60A Coonawarra Cabernet-Kalimna Shiraz 1962, which was sold for an auction record of AU$14,562.

Other highlights include the “Henschke Hill of Grace experience’, which included an exclusive tour for two and a set of rare Hill of Grace magnums and a double magnum, which was sold for AU$19,805.

Other impressive results included Torbreck ‘The Laird’ Shiraz 2012 which sold for AU$7,689; Rockford’s Basket Press Shiraz 1996 was sold for AU$5,592, a significant increase since it was last auctioned by Langton’s, according to Barossa Wine Chapters Auction.

In addition to reds, ‘The Ultimate Riesling Collection’ of 81 bottles of Riesling from 27 wine producers was auctioned off for AU$4,893.

“This would have to be the most buoyant, fully supported Barossa auction in history. The results illustrate a belief among both Barossa winemakers and international buyers that the Barossa is, and will be, the classic wine region of Australia for years to come,” commented Caillard.

This year’s auction also saw the introduction of the Barossa Seal of Provenance, in an effort to combat wine counterfeiting. All bottles sold through the auction featured the tamper-proof Seal of Provenance, which is a unique code as a point of verification for the life of the wine. The seal will protect the security and integrity of the bidders’ investment.
