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, so we put a pack together for you....
FROM THE WINEMAKER
"This is the Red Headed Step Child of Riesling.
Fruit Sourced from the same vineyard as our 'Super Model' Reisling; however, it has been treated with a hint of abandonment.
Whole juice, barrel fermented, unfiltered, unfined, unruly. Left alone in the corner of the shed to ferment; this wine has to act up to get heard.
Personality plus but I wonder is it only a face a mother could love?"
Riesling. Dry. Acidic. Spice is a great test. Try a duck spiced leg. If you are eating with cheese keep it less smelly and soft.
JC Score 8/10
Tastes better than it looks. Really interesting to do the comparison on the two Goon Tycoons Riesling's - I take this one in a blind tasting. Dry enough and with enough acidity.
