I don't know if that says anything but this is a test shot with my D700 (12,1mpx) at ISO 8000!! No editing. The lens is the old Nikon 28-105 AF-D f/3,5-4,5
Just RAW to jpeg and then an automatic noise reduction through "DeNoise Ai" software.
It looks to me like an iso 400 shot. Very clear and full of details.

Nikon D700-iso 8000

Full of artifacts (false details) too.

ISO 6400 pushed .33 of a stop. Bottom crop is resized to match the D700 output and then post-processed using Topaz Denoise and Sharpening.

I took a lighter approach to the noise reduction to avoid the artifacting that is evident in the text of your bottle.
