Held last night in Crown Sydney’s Pearl Ballroom, more than 250 wine collectors and enthusiasts were given the opportunity to bid on 36 sought-after wines, with a total hammer value of more than $200,000 AUD.
The collection highlights the continued and unprecedented rise in demand for fine wines in the secondary market, with customers seeking out a curated selection of premium wines filled with rich heritage and unparalleled character.
The Penfolds Block 42, Kalmina took out the highest lot value at $34,000, followed by the Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz at $22,000 and followed by the 6-pack of Chateau Rayas at $15,000.
Tamara Grischy (pronounced Grishy), LANGTONS General Manager, said the fine wine auction is an opportunity to showcase the stunning collection of wines from one of the world’s most revered wine regions.
“Some of the key characteristics that make the Barossa so desirable are its heritage, history and age - some of these vines are more than 100 years old,” Ms Grischy said.
“The Barossa is home to very passionate people who hold on to the values of family and tradition - that really comes through in the winemaking.”
“Of course, the Barossa dirt also makes the wine world-class."
“These wines are highly collectable but you can also enjoy them today, in five years or in 20 years time."
“What makes this auction so unique is that it features wine that you cannot buy anywhere in the general market and that makes it really special.”
The event also attracted interest from overseas, with international bidders given the opportunity to to take part through telephone and online bidding.
The event also raises money for charity, with profits raised from the sale of the Barossan lots going to the The Barossa Australia Wellbeing Fund; a foundation that aims to better provide the wine region with mental health support.
