Penfolds : 80.000 dollar

A single bottle of Penfolds Grange Shiraz 1951 has sold at Langton’s Australia for A$80,386. That sets a new record for the inaugural Grange vintage and makes it Australia’s most expensive wine sold at auction, Langton’s said.

 

 

The same auction house sold a bottle of the 1951 vintage for A$78,000 in June this year, breaking a previous record of A$59,416, set in December 2017.

Only 20 bottles of Penfolds Grange Hermitage 1951 were believed to still exist.

The Shiraz wine was created as an experiment by late winemaker Max Schubert, who produced around 2,000 bottles from the 1951 vintage.

This vintage was never commercially released, but many wine lovers would identify it as a seminal moment in Australian wine history.
