Description

Auction Lot Details

From Sileni a very special auction lot, 20 years in the making. The first Sileni wines were made from the acclaimed 1998 vintage of which a number of large format bottles have been resting peacefully in our library cellar ever since. In 2008 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary and now, 20 years after that first vintage we are bottling our excellent 2018 vintage wines. For this years auction we have put together 4 magnums of Merlot Cabernet blend from each of these three vintages. All have been tasted, topped and sealed with a new cork and re-waxed. Truly a unique and special collection.

In ancient Greece the Sileni were companions of Dionysus, the god of wine. When there was something to be celebrated, the Sileni were always on hand to encourage enjoyment of delicious food, great wine and social interaction.
