The big bucks
In New Zealand, according to Master of Wine Bob Campbell, “Wines with $100-plus price tags are no longer the rarity they once were.” Writing in The Real Review, he says 57 of our wines fetch that price. The most expensive is Magna Praemia, a handcrafted Bordeaux blend by Waiheke Island’s Destiny Bay Wine, retailing from $435 to $800 a bottle for older vintages. Obviously not an everyday wine, but wouldn’t it be fun? destinybaywine.com.
