Wine Investment – VIP 2021

Wine Investment

VIP 2021

Overview

Following 2015 and 2017 that are considered among the finest vintages in South African modern history, 2016, 2018 and 2019 posed several challenges. Though there are great wines to be found from these vintages, due to varied flowering, rain at different times and difficult conditions in general, these vintages are certainly not homogenous in quality. 2020 was the first vintage following 2017 where there was great homogeneity in quality in the wines.

The vintage was marked by more moderate temperatures that led to wines of great balance, acidity and length. Though not considered as powerful as 2015 or 2017, a couple of winemakers noted that their wines are some of the most structured that they have crafted. Considering estimated future release prices as well as the free cellaring on the portfolio, there is a 13.1% discount built into the portfolio. We view this as the most cost-effective vehicle for purchasing some of South Africa’s top wines.

Wine Investment VIP 2015

Overview

The Vintage Investment Portfolio 2015 was launched in 2018 as Wine Cellar's first and long-awaited investment product. It is a unitised basket of SA’s most investable wines, heralding from the greatest modern-day vintage. Offered with almost 20 years of fine wine trading experience, we believe this investment vehicle attracts the least administration and cost, along with the highest possible return.

Professional cellaring is included in the purchase price with no further costs for the first 5 years. This constitutes a cellaring cost saving of R17,776 per unit on release, an effective 17.8% discount. Flexibility is provided in the ability to trade single wines or entire VIP units. A VIP unit of the same wines from the 2009 vintage would have seen an annual return of 16,5% (as of October 2018). Total stock within the VIP 2015s constitutes approximately 1.5% of total production and is a leap forward in providing a secondary market for fine wine in the future.
