$785 a bottle for 2008 Grange

The latest vintage of Australia's most famous red wine, Penfolds Grange, goes on sale on Thursday with an asking price of $785 a bottle and a 100 out of 100 rating from one influential wine publication. Given the extraordinary hype over the 2008 and a price hike of more than $100 over the previous vintage, the question is, is it worth it? Campbell Mattinson (pictured), publisher of The Wine Front, gives it a stellar rating, but doesn't rate it in his top five Granges.
