14 & 15 December, Fine Wines & Rare Whiskies

By December 7, 2021Uncategorized

Webb’s Fine Wines & Whiskies department is signing off 2021 with a magnificent double feature. We will hold our two final auctions of the year on Tuesday December 14 and Wednesday December 15. This is a stylish pairing of live auctions, with Fine Wines in the limelight on Tuesday evening, before our first ever Rare Whiskies only live auction brings the curtain down on the year on Wednesday.

The holiday season has officially begun, and we’ve got some big-time wines to adorn your cellar in the Fine Wines auction. There is a plethora of options to bolster your collection from all the top wine regions including New Zealand, Champagne, Burgundy, and Bordeaux.

Leading the charge are multiple lots of Stonyridge in OWC, and Burgundy continues to impress with selections from Armand Rousseau, Roumier, Vogue, and Rene Engel. Blue-chip Bordeaux will enhance any cellar with highlights from Mouton, Haut Brion, Pavie Macquin, & Yquem.

Why not gift yourself some vintage Champagne with the always-festive Taittinger Comtes de Champagne and a bottle of the standout 1990 Salon? Sit back, relax, and set your bids now, before the auction on Tuesday at 6:30pm.

The impressive collection in our first-ever Rare Whiskies auction boasts over 100 lots, including 15 spectacular selections of The Macallan. We are honoured to present the premiere of the legendary Karuizawa collection. This is the first time we have offered a significant selection of this most collectable of Japanese whiskies.

Ardbeg has always held a special place in Department Head Marcus Atkinson’s heart after he visited the Islay distillery in his university days – it was then freshly re-opened. Another member of the Islay whisky scene is Bruichladdich, and its relative newcomer Octomore bottlings are the now cult-favourites.

Hibiki is represented by not only a limited edition 21YO but also the extremely rare 30 YO expression. From the other side of the world Kentucky is in the house with some sensational Bourbons.

Altogether, this is an incredible collection that can satisfy multiple generations of whisky lovers, starting with you and stretching into the future.

Holding two fantastic back-to-back auctions is a fitting way to end what has been a record-shattering year for Webb’s Fine Wines & Whiskies department. Come in and join us for some festive cheer over these two action-packed days. Though if you can’t make it in person, please do join us online.

We look forward to carrying on in 2022 as the undisputed number one Wine & Whiskies auction house in New Zealand.
