A Te Mata Coleraine Vertical of 32 vintages (1982–2016) donated by Stewart Group to HB Wine Auction 2018 raised $19,000 for Cranford Hospice!
Hawke's Bay Charity Cranford Hospice last night received a huge financial boost, after a rare wine collection sold in a thrilling auction that raised $19,000 for the hospice.
A "one of a kind" collection of a vertical lot collection of 32 vintages of the globally acclaimed Te Mata Estate Coleraine, donated by the Hastings-based Stewart family, went under the hammer at a pre-tasting event ahead of the annual Hawke's Bay Wine Auction next month.
About 200 people attended the pre-tasting, creating an electric atmosphere during the auction of the Te Mata Estate vertical, with bidders pushing up the price until Harcourts chief auctioneer Craig Smith finally brought the hammer down at $19,000 for the lot - or $593.75 a bottle.
The lot, which took the Stewart family 20 years to collect, was sold to Maraekakaho couple Simon and Natasha Gilbertson.
Giving back to the community!
Part of a family's two-decade-long quest to build a rare collection of one of Hawke's Bay's most renowned wines is to go under the hammer, all to raise money for charity.
Hawke's Bay-based family business Stewart Group has donated a Te Mata Coleraine Vertical of 32 vintages (1982–2016) from their private collection, all due to be auctioned at this year's Hawke's Bay Wine Auction pre-tasting event in October. The auction proceedings will be gifted to the Cranford Hospice as an encouragement for the community services they do.
Wine connoisseur and Hastings-based financial advisor Nick Stewart said his father Don and mother Mary had "quite a journey" to establish the vertical collection, which includes a bottle from every year since the Te Mata Estate's famed 1982 vintage.
