Australian Fortified Wines

Question by: Cameron, Australia, via Mobile


Hi there, I have a bottle of Hardys 1979 vintage port, Americas Cup Defender 1987 Kookaburra 3 and was just wondering what this may be worth please?  Thank you very much.


Just as sparkling wine made outside of Champagne, France, is not strictly "Champagne" so fortified wines made outside of the Douro region of Portugal are not strictly "Ports."   As makers of true Port here in Portugal, and not active in the secondary market for Port or any other wines, Symington Family Estates are not well placed to help you on this query.  We would suggest you contact a specialist wine merchant in your area who could advise you on the secondary market for these wines, or an auction house which specialises in Australian fine wines, such as Langton's.
