Agreed that RunRig and Descendents are great wines, but I'd much rather pay USD35 for Laughing Magpie than USD85-140 for the Torbreck.
Prices in Oz are
Laughing Magpie $23 (case buy)
The Decendants $125
Run Rig $225
So we are not talking about a multiplier of 2.5 between the LM and the Torbreck; we have a 5 times multiplier for the Decendants and its 10 times for the Run Rig.
That's my point: I can drink that cheery bird more often that the Torbreck (as much as I'd like to be able to regularly drink a Scottish-named wine!).
