Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) has released what it claims is the world's most expensive bottle of wine.
Only 12 Penfolds 2004 Block 42 will go on sale, each with a US$168,000 price tag, the Australian winery said today (28 June). The wine comes completely encased in glass with no cork or screwcap.
When owners want it opened Penfolds will send a senior winemaker to wherever they are in the world, the company said.
The so-called Ampoules will be launched in Moscow by Penfolds chief winemaker, Peter Gago.
“The Ampoule project is typical of the pioneering philosophy behind Penfolds' winemaking evolution,” Gago said.
