Why you’ll love it?
With a name like Goon Tycoons you can certainly expect something bold, adventurous and rebellious! Just some of the words from their mantra, these guys certainly mean business producing individual small batch wines sourced from the best grapes from the region. Cheeky labels, but serious wines - a force to be reckoned with.
The Red Headed Step Child, as its name might suggest, is the unwanted, neglected child of the family. For GoT fans - think Jon Snow! Although it’s sourced from the same single vineyard as their “Supermodel” Riesling, these grapes have not been as “refined” or pampered as its sibling. Whole juice fermented in barrels, unfiltered and unfined. This technique is unusual in modern Riesling production, but rather harks back to the traditional cellars of Germany before the invention of stainless steel tanks and refrigeration technology for temperature control. The resulting wine will blow your mind! Dry finish. Only 23 cases made!
Dry, with aromas and flavours of lemon, spiced honey with hints of marmalade and hint of oak. Textural and gentle on the palate with an underscore of lively acidity with a well rounded, delicious finish. It’s a Riesling, but not as you would normally know it! The unloved step-child that has certainly proven its worthiness.
Perfect with: Roasted coral trout, Bouillabaisse or Brillat Saravin
