Tomich I777 Icons of Woodside Pinot Noir 2017

Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $60.00
This is a complex yet fresh pinot offering cherries and red fruits along with truffle and mushroom. Fruit intensity and sweetness are both very good. Plenty of length here and it is definitely worth having with food. Not footy frank mind but something quality, like duck and shitake mushroom risotto with fresh peas and mint.

The Tomich family make excellent wine from their substantial plantings in the Adelaide Hills. They are pretty talented too. Randal invented the ‘vibrosoiler’ which allows better maintenance of topsoil while preparing land for vineyard planting, resulting in quicker, sustainable vine growth and a shortening of the time between planting and achieving commercial yields. Dad John is a specialist Doctor who also has a postgrad degree in winemaking and is studying to become a master of wine.

Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine.
