Oldest wine opened in NZ still 'amazing' after 113 years

After 113 years in a farmhouse cellar, a bottle of wine believed to be the oldest ever opened in New Zealand has astonished critics by still tasting great. "It's superb. Amazing, really ... It's still hanging on, shaking its fist at you out of the glass," was how wine writer John Saker summed up the 1903 Landsdowne Claret opened in Wairarapa on Wednesday.
