IT was a day of mixed results at the Great Wine Estates auction held at Cape Mentelle on the day Australia dropped the rugby world cup into the hands of the invaders from the Northern Hemisphere.

What a pity the good results from the auction couldn’t have been matched by a Wallaby win.

The  ‘imperials auction for charity’ raised $30,000 for the Busselton Population Research Foundation – founded by the late Kevin Cullen.

The barrels on auction fetched the following prices. (Barrel prices equal 25 cases, or 300 bottles.)

$17,062 – 2001 Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River; $20,475 – 2002 Cullen Wines Diana Madeline Cabernet Merlot, Margaret River; $9,100 – 2003 Devil’s Lair Chardonnay, Margaret River; $12,512 – 2002 Houghton Jack Mann Cabernet Malbec Shiraz, Great Southern; $22,750 – 2002 Howard Park Cabernet, Western Australia; $19,337 – 2001 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay, Margaret River;  $22,750 – 2003 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River; $14,787 – 2003 Pierro Chardonnay, Margaret River; $10,237 – 2002 Plantagenet Cabernet Sauvignon, Great Southern; $10,237 – 2002 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River;  $11,375 – 2001 Voyager Estate Cabernet Merlot, Margaret River; $9,441 – 2001 Xanadu Lagan Estate Cabernet Reserve, Margaret River.
