A bottle of shiraz produced by Leasingham wines in the Clare Valley, South Australia, bottled for the State Bank of Victoria State college in 1978.

The bottle of wine belonged to Harold 'Keith' Morter who spent his whole working life at the State Savings Bank of Victoria. Through the course of his long and successful career and subsequent retirement, Keith saved a number of mementos of the bank. Keith's collection not only provides insight into one man's working life, it also covers some important periods in Australian banking history, including the introduction of cheque accounts, the opening of small branches across the State, and the adoption of decimal currency.
