Yalumba The Octavius joins Australia’s Top 101 Collectable Wines

 Join the Club

The fourth Langton’s classification announced today sees the inclusion of Yalumba The Octavius for the first time, ranked as ‘Outstanding’.

“This announcement has confirmed the evolution of ‘The Octavius’ from an idea, through trial, error and learning to an individual interpretation of extraordinary Old Vine Barossa Shiraz”, says Robert Hill Smith, Yalumba Proprietor.  “The development of ‘The Octavius’ has been a rewarding, continuous journey and one which now has additional challenges and responsibilities”.

Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine was first released in 1991 and is now a benchmark of Australian wine investment. The Classification is a ranking of Australia’s best performing wines based on market demand, both in-store and also on the secondary market. These are Australia’s blue-chip investment wines.

Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine has achieved recognition because the criteria for inclusion is market-driven and the Classification is regularly revised and updated, so it’s relevant. The fourth edition of the Classification, released today, “is an all round list which captures the heart of the contemporary secondary wine market”, says Andrew Caillard MW, from Langton’s. “These ultra-fine wines have a reputation for evoking the spirit of the Australian landscape, the nuances of each season, the intellect of the winemaker and his or her emotional connection with the vineyard.”
