Turkish wine producer Chamlija's single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Django is believed to be the country's first wine to retail at £100 a bottle, selling out within six months of its launch.

Chamlija, a wine merchant based in Thrace, Turkey, said the wine was released to the market earlier this year and will retail for £100 in the UK.
Only 200 cases of this wine were produced and it was made from grapes harvested in September 2016.
Mustafa Camlica, founder of wine merchant Chamlija, said strong demand from abroad and the Turkish market has seen wines sell out despite the staggeringly high prices of Turkish wines and the pneumonia virus crisis.
Camlica says the wine recently won a gold medal at the latest edition of the Global Cabernet Sauvignon Masters, and has been a very successful performer in markets such as Turkey, Taiwan, the UK and Switzerland.
Camlica added: The demand for premium wines in the global market is still strong and will remain strong. I am very happy with the commercial success of Django Wines, despite the weakness of the economy both abroad and in Turkey, and the most important achievement of Django Wines is in the export market. We were able to export 1/3 of our total production and we will continue to export premium wines and surprise the market with their quality.
