Outer quote mark The light amber-hued Old Sweet White (18% alcohol), made from 90% Muscadelle and 10% Pedro Ximinez,  possesses loads of flavor, plenty of sweet caramel, hazelnut, and honey notes, and a long, tea-like finish. It will keep in the bottle 5-10 days after being opened; unopened it will keep indefinitely. Until 3-4 decades ago, many Australian wineries were better known for their fortified than dry table wines. For whatever reason, many of these fortifieds fell out of favor in Australia, and have never received the respect they deserve given how spectacular many can be. Rick Burge’s ancestors always made fortified wines, and kept the soleras active during their lifetimes. After many years, Rick Burge decided to begin bottling some of these old fortified wines. There are five different offerings, all of them stunningly rich and intense. I suspect most of them are extremely old, although no records were kept, so it is impossible to know the average age of the solera for each of these cuvees. No one will be disappointed in these spectacular non-vintage fortifieds. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2004)

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
