Legendary Australian wine

Interest in some of the greatest names in twentieth century Australian wine would appear to be growing.  Certainly, it is something I am increasingly taking an interest in.  This month sees a local auction with the famous Woodley’s “Skeleton” Treasure Chest Series Coonawarra 1956 and Woodley’s “The Galatea” Treasure Chest Series Coonawarra 1955 each with current bids of $1,500.

I’ll endeavour to dig out the history of these wines.  It seems easier to find tasting notes and rhapsodies rather than  the specifics of the viticulture and winemaking!  If you have these to hand though, please do chime in.
