Wine News : Giant Sale - Tall Horse wines


Giant is having another promotion on their wines. The truth is that I have never tasted Tall Horse wines. But it being South African, I think it is worth a try, though I wouldn't put too much hope except for expecting a fruity uncomplicated wine.

The attraction is probably the 4 glasses of Riedel Ouverture Red Glasses FREE when you buy 24 bottles of wine. (i.e. 2 cases). So if you are a big quaffer, then the deal is pretty interesting. It does seem to be an overkill though.

Commentary : Ouch! It must really hurt, especially all the hard work and time involved to cultivate and harvest the wines. Thankfully everything was insured. Wonder how they value the wine? Price in USA where it was intended to be sold or Price in Australia where it was made?
