Here’s a good quality Pinot Grigio at half RRP. It looks like a bargain.
Tomich Hill Woodside Pinot Grigio sounds like a good wine and at this price it looks like a great bargain.
The winery describes this wine as true to the Italian Pinot Grigio style, which means a dry wine with a little bit of body, rather than the bland alcohol delivery device that some cheap Pinot Grigios can be. They go on to describe it as nashi pear and green apples with a crisp, dry finish.
Campbell Mattinson at Wine Front was pretty complimentary of the 2014 vintage handing over 91 points. James Halliday gives the current vinatge 88 points , describing it as having good varietal expression, with the focus on grapefruit and pear fruit. These respected reviewers seem to like the drop.
Price is pretty difficult to figure as it seems to be sold mainly in restaurants, where they charge crazy prices. Pulpit Cellars stock it for $22 per bottle, which we’ve used as our Real Price. Either way, $10.00 is a pretty massive markdown.
Tomich wines do appear on offer from time-to-time, often featuring in mystery deals, but we can’t find this wine having been as heavily discounted. It was featured on the site in November 2015, for $12.50 a bottle, so this offer beats that price easily!
If you like a slightly fuller, characterful Pinot Grigio – one that goes with food – then this is probably a good wine for you. Similarly, if you like a lighter style of Chardonnay, with a bit of fruit character, then this is a wine that you’ll probably enjoy too.
At this price grab a case for those long summer days sipping in the sunshine. At $10.00 including delivery it’s hard to go wrong.
