Wine snobs don't hesitate even when the price is high. How do you put a price, after all, on a superior vino?
But still — $168,000?
Australian winemaker Penfolds released a wine last year that cost about $1,000 — an impressive sum. But that's nothing compared with its 2004 Kalimna Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is priced at, yes, AUD$168,000, equivalent £100,000.
