Atacama

Take that, Bob

Australia's leading fine wine auction house have just published the 4th edition of their list of which wines consistently do well at auction.

Clonakilla are represented on the list for the first time this year, appearing in the 2nd tier.

Robert Parker's fave, Torbreck RunRig, which is very similar to Clonakilla's shiraz viognier in a certain sense, is in group 3.

This of course makes me happy: Clonakilla is continuing to do very, very well. Amazingly, given the performance of their wines at auction, they don't seem to have raised prices very much. This is good, because I'd like to buy a case a year until I die, and because I can just barely afford it at current prices.
