Our friends at Goon Tycoons are doing some pretty cool stuff. They seem to not care what the wine industry, the traditionalist, the conversations think. They are writing their own ticket, and we love it....
Mourvedre, Shiraz, Grenache. People don’t think they like MSG but it really makes everything taste better. 100% Frankland River, sourced mainly from a bush vine vineyard of International hill this wines Perfumed savoury lift gives way to a sappy juicy tannin laden core of awesomeness. The Flavour enhanced GSM!
FROM THE WINEMAKER
"2016 was a cool long growing season in Frankland River. The best wines reflect this in their subtle and balanced tannin profile. We basically did everything awesome to the individual parcels and then blended them together to make them even more awesome.
The wine is a bright crimson with medium intensity. The nose offes spicey lifted nose, redolent in red plums and star anise. The body of the wine is medium with super fine-grained tannins and subtle French oak the palate unfolds into a myriad of blood plums and mulberry fruit flavours."
Julian Langworthy (Google him - doing big things in Australia right now!)
Teams well with antipasto, red meats and Thursdays
JC SCORE 8.5/10
This is a wine worth taking seriously. The name, the label, the winemaker are all about having fun, and that is something we support, but don't let that cloud your judgement, this is a high-quality Franklin River MSG.
