      Why is this categorised under laundry in the URL ?

      I can let you know after tonight. As soon as this wine appeared on news.com.au as having won a prize my local Aldi was cleaned out of it. I managed to get 2 bottles this past weekend!

      No but if you cellar the Grange it will probably appreciate in value over time compared to the Aldi wine that probably wont increase in value. Actually drinking it? Who knows, i have bottles of grange, no intention of ever drinking them.

        Wine can only hold taste and value over a certain amount of time beyond that it starts degrade.

      Nope, tried them both, this is only 98 times better.

    •  

      Ive had it and its no more than a very good example of traditional South Australia shiraz. Worth maybe $100 without its label.

    Thanks, bought a couple of cases for the Ozbargain 11th Bday meet up.

    My email saying $649…

          In the previous millennium. It's now arcaic.

          Language is constantly changing. There are no fixed rules.

          Try telling me your new fangled English is right and the old one is wrong if language is fixed in stone, so to speak.

        • +2 votes

          Easy mate…orbital's Grange and coke is the perfect accompaniment for the Grange beef stew I'm making. But you are more than welcome to bring your own food and drink if you prefer something else.

          We'll be using any leftover Grange to wash the stains out of our clothing, so don't worry about wastage!

      •  

        Extends better with lemonade. Just ask for a shanraz at your local pub.

    Does anyone have any experience in buying and selling Grange?

    I've heard they go up in value. Some older bottles fetch over $10,000.

    • +4 votes

      Unless you're an expert, leave speculating on Grange to others. Current secondary market conditions for recent (last 10-12 years) vintages see you being able to pick up bottles for less than initial retail release prices ($400-500).

      Value might increase if you can 1) hold on for 20+ years as bottles get drunk; 2) pick the right vintage; 3) ensure you store it very very well. 2010 will likely hold and increase in value in future years, as it was an exceptional vintage with huge OS demand.

      Most people lose money/break even/make a negligible profit on Grange ss it's not cheap at retail any more.

      Many people buy Grange as an investment rather than an expensive indulgence. I have one put away to give to my son when he turns 21

        I see. So grange is like bitcoins

        •  

          Slightly more stable in value. Though on the flip-side, if you bought $600 worth of bitcoins 21 years ago (or as early as possible) and gifted them to your kid now, they'd be an instant billionaire, not even kidding. They were at $0.08 at one point. Now they're at, what, $5,000.00?

          Just for kicks:

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_bitcoin#Prices_and_...

          Mar 2010 $0.003
          $600.00 buys you 200,000 bitcoins.

          17-20 November 2017 $7,600.00-$8,100.00
          Use the lower value,
          200,000 bitcoins are worth $1,520,000,000.00

          READ IT! THAT'S 1.5 BILLION DOLLARS! WTF.

          @0blivion: Yup, all the crypto doubters over the years have eaten their words. I have constantly defended them as an investment and the price has skyrocketed. Read an article yesterday how they eclipse the DotCom bubble and the Tulip bubble. Whether the bubble will pop is anyones guess but I personally have been enjoying the ride, no other investment would have netted me this kind of return…

        •  

          @worthy1: Yeah. Buying in NOW might be a bit more risky (who really knows though), but it's certainly never going to fall to the values it was at even a year ago, much less if you bought in years ago. Just speculative purchases by people the moment it dips significantly from today's $8k price will keep the value up if absolutely nothing else.

        •  

          @0blivion: Hope so, there might be less risk in alts. Even as a crypto trader I watch the trading and know its manipulated as hell. It can rise or drop as it wants, plus that and the fact there is no real reason it is as high as it is. Hopefully bubble don't go boom boom :)

        •  

          @worthy1: What would you recommend as a "gateway" cryptocurrency right now? I heard ethereum was going strong but then apparently someone hacked $3mil+ from an exchange just recently?

        • +2 votes

          @0blivion:
          Ethereum was my starter, bought it at $12 at the start of the year, then moved onto Ripple which was under 1c (Now 23 = x23 return). Just need to look for good alts that have a real world usage and nice backings. Ethereum has that, Litecoin should be more than it is as its always been bitcoins silver. Any of the top 10 have potential for more although a lot have seen a boom.

          read up on POWR (Power Ledger) it has been out for a month and has already seen 20x since its ICO. It is an Australian one that is looking to use the Power ledger as a way for consumers to buy electricity cheaper by utilising others excess electricity from things like solar. Is generating major interest with even Tesla contacting them to see what they are up to. Word is Telstra may take them on also. Potential for major gains being that they have no competition in that field, but as always in the cryptospace its a hit and hope….

      So you'd say that to Bill gates who probably spends $5000 per meal on the finest meat, wine and ingredients?

      Just because it's excessive for you. Why does it relate to people who find it not excessive?

      How about buying a bottle wine for $50,there must be some decent for that money and for the $600 feed some homeless people, donate to orphans or do something else that means to a lot of people much more than a bottle of wine.

      How about buying a bottle of $649 wine for some homeless people, so at least they have some decent plonk to drink?

      No wonder this planer is fu@%ed

      It probably wasn't a wise plan to drink all the wine for yourself…and you call yourself a planner!

      Could say the same for cars, mobile phones, computers, TVs

        I could and would. There's nothing wrong with having things at all but i think there's something wrong with buying things that hundreds or thousand times more than a alternative product.

          When you go to a bar and buy a beer for $10
          You could get that same beer from the bottle shop in slab for $1.5
          So you're paying 600% mark up for the Same eproduct.
          $8.5 is a weeks pay in many third world countries

          See where this is heading :)

    They should release it in a 4 litre cask, nothing worse than opening 5 bottles to make sangria and not using the remainder.

    I've never tried grange, I could never fork out that sort of money for a bottle of wine… other indulgences though, perhaps lol.
    I do remember though when this came out…

    http://margaretriverdiscovery.com.au/the-32-margaret-river-w...

    I bought 2 bottles, one to keep and one to drink. So like any good citizen, I drank both. It was damn fine. Might of been the next day maybe 2 I went back to the same shop and it was sold out and I didn't see another bottle… was devo.

    The 1960 vintage sold for $1.75, about $25 in todays money, and now worth around $1400, a return of 7%pa real, not counting storage costs, and with Penfolds free maintenance.

    The outstanding 1990 vintage was released at $140 (in '94?), $250 in todays money, now worth $515, so 6% p.a. Not bad if you treat it as a hobby, and don't count the effort. But there are better, much lower risk investments.

    Current resale price of the 2010 is of course lower than the retail price, but store it well for 5 or ten years, and it may be worth what you paid for it.

    I’ve tried this vintage, it’s pretty niiiiice.
    Not $649 nice though … but then again I don’t think any wine is worth this much

    I will bet my life this isn't 100x better than my go-to St Andrews Merlot from LiquorLand!
