Under $10 pinot grigio
Oxford Landing Pinot Grigio, South Australia 2014 $9
The colour is pale and the bouquet is intense and spicy, a but more gris than grigio perhaps, and almost viognier-like in its spicy stone-fruit aromas. It’s light-bodied, soft and rounded, although the aftertaste is quite generous and weighty and lingers on. (12.5 per cent alcohol). Aging: Now to two years. Score: 86 ★★★ – view on HuonHooke.com
