Is this a new record for Singapore? – Penfolds Grange at S$820

I think this deserves its own special mention.

Carrefour has listed in today’s Today, 2005 Penfolds Grange at S$820, on sale from U.P. S$890.

Gobsmacked is a word that comes to mind. Or, as we might say down under “tell ‘em they’re dreaming”

Last I heard (and saw), 2005 Grange was selling in Singapore for around the S$520 mark. Wine Exchange Asia certainly had it at that, and maybe they still do. It’s currently on offer in Australia for A$500.

You be the judge, but the BBI doesn’t have a publishable designation for this asking price.

Let us have some wine and women,

mirth and laughter,

Sermons and soda-water

the day after

– Lord Byron

Wine quotations

"A good bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world" - Louis Pasteur

“The unexacting palates of the masses…are content to ask no question [on origin] so long as a florin or half-a-crown will purchase a roomy flagon of strong , full-bodied, fruity wine” – CE Hawker writing in 1907
