A rare collection of vintage wines from some of the finest South African, French, German and Italian cellars is available for purchase at the Steenberg Vinoteque Wine Auction, a five-week long online auction starting on October 10.
The 180 lots, varying in size from single bottles to cases of six or 12, include French Bordeaux, Chablis, Sancerre and Champagne, a Chianti Reserva from Italy and a Saar Riesling from Germany.
The South African line-up features optimally aged wines from top tier wineries as well as older Catharina, Nebbiolo and Shiraz vintages from Steenberg’s own wine library.
Steenberg Vineyards are unlocking the vault of their restaurant vinoteques and releasing these fine collectors’ wines to the highest bidder to make room for more wines originating from Constantia.
Wine lovers will be able to cherry pick older vintages from top producers such as Raats, Vondeling, Boekenhoutskloof, Kaapzicht, Vilafonte, Mulderbosch, Le Riche, Tokara, Mullineux and Jordan, to name a few.
The oldest vintage on offer is a 2003 Morgenster Reserve Red. A pre-auction tasting of a selection of the online auction wines will be held at Catharina’s Restaurant at Steenberg from 4pm to 7pm on Wednesday, October 10.
