Chateau Margaux 1er Grand Cru 1983 (1x 750mL),Margaux,Bordeaux,France. Cork

Lot No: 0010-2474097

Since the 17th Century, the first wine of Château Margaux has been recognised as being one of the greatest wines in the entire world. It owes its unique qualities to the genius of its terroir as well as to the passionate work of a succession of generations. It’s a remarkable wine that comes from a combination of characteristics that are only rarely found: finesse, elegance, complexity, density, intensity, length and freshness. Although its tannic concentration may be exceptional, it’s rare to detect astringency. The great vintages are distinguished by their formidable ability to move us. The lesser vintages give pleasure to wise enthusiasts. They offer the advantage of evolving very rapidly and, reveal, after a few years, instead of power, this subtlety that is the prerogative of great terroirs. Château Margaux has an extraordinary ability to evolve. Over the years, it has developed a finesse, an aromatic complexity and a remarkable presence on the palate. (263439-12)


Lindemans Classic Release'Bin 6600' Shiraz 1983 (1 x 750mL), Hunter, NSW.

Lot No: 0024-2474097

Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The old Lindemans Hunter River Burgundies are what we know these days as Hunter Valley Shiraz, though some were known to receive the odd splash of Pinot Noir to add lightness and a hint of extra complexity. Widely recognised as two of Australia's greatest ever wines were the 1965 Bin 3100 and 3110 Lindemans Hunter Burgundies, and this 83 vintage 6600 follows in its illustrious ancestors footsteps.Kept back in Lindemans cellars until re-released in 2000, this wine was made by Hunter legend Karl Stockhausen, and is a rare opportunity to see why so many industry insiders praise Hunter Shiraz so highly.In Stockhausen's words: “Nothing special was done on the winemaking side of the 1983 Bin 6600. It just happened to be a great wine of a good vintage. It cannot be over-emphasised that much of the flavour and texture of a Shiraz depends on the grapes that produced it. In other words, great Shiraz is made from grapes of great vines.” (252159-110)
