Forklift's $1M Red Wine Accident "Was Like a Murder Scene"

My first question in regards to the horrible accident at Mollydooker Wines is if anyone got down on their hands and knees and started lapping like a dog. Second question—$1million worth of Aussie shiraz?! What the hell happened?!

According to the Washington Post, the forklift dropped 461 cases of Velvet Glove Shiraz which was destined for the US, where they were going to be sold for $200 a bottle. Unfortunately the "gut-wrenched, shocked and numb" owner of Mollydooker Wines, one Sparky Marquis (got to love those traditional Orrstrayan names) is now down a third of his entire production thanks to this unfortunate accident. Luckily for Mollydooker Wines, the wine was insured. [Washington Post]
