Brief History

Located in the Barossa valley and first created in 1980 by Rocky O’Callaghan of Rockford’s fame (who was the winemaker at St Hallett’s from the 1970’s through to 1983). Made from single vineyard old vine Shiraz, this style is favored by many fans of Barossa Shiraz who favor its fine milk chocolate, and sometimes plum-orange, flavors as it ages. It can be big and bold and then elegant as it puts on time in the bottle.

It is a classic Australian wine with solid support at auction, on average commanding around $50 per bottle, it occasionally peaks around $95 for the better, aged vintages or when somebody is trying to fill a vertical for a back vintage tasting.

Notes on pricing and valuation

Low Range
Typically, price clusters form over time at market value. The low value is then calculated from the average accumulated hammer price at auction from multiple Australian wine auction houses over a 6 month period. All prices are for bottles with no damage or ullage. Well stored bottles with a documented purchase and storage history will always attract the best prices.

High Range
High prices are typically outliers or record high values achieved over a long period of time and,typically, includes only a very low sample of bottles sold, never the average and most often only a single bottle.

Last sale
This figure is not shown, as using it in isolation can produce a false sense of the true value of a bottle.

A note on auction reserves
All auction houses generally set a reserve price 10% less than the low price range. This allows for fluctuations of the market price going down as well as up.
