Julian Langworthy is exploring a different side of Maragret River with his Goon Tycoons range. He won the 2016 Jimmy Watson Trophy with a classic Margaret River Cabernet, but this is a whole different kettle of fish. There's some sensational Terlodego in this part of the country, just look at the Blue Poles and the Amato Vino if you need a reference. The Goon Tycoons' is built for immediate impact, compatibility with food and general moreish-ness. When you want a dark, rich, brooding red but don't want the same old Shiraz or Cabernet, this release is going to hit the spot, guaranteed. Only 126 cases made.
What it Tastes Like
Black cherries in their juices, freshly polished leather boots, spices and cream. Smells luxurious. The tannins are firm but not in a severe way. The fruit floods in. Rolling, inky, svelte and licorice twisted. The fruit is sweet but the tannins are dry as a bone. It’s savoury to close, the finish is long and chewy and riddled with spice. It’s ripe, it’s ready and raring to go.
Rare as hens teeth, this northern Italian variety was sourced from a single site right here in Margaret River. Fermented in new French oak puncheons. 126 cases.
Closure: Screw Cap
Bottle Size: 750ml

Margaret River is recognised as one of the country’s finest wine growing regions. The quality of the region’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay rival the very best in the world. But Margaret River is no two-trick-pony. There, Tempranillo and Malbec are excelling, Touriga Nacional seems to be quite at home, Chenin Blanc is getting serious and even pockets of Nebbiolo are rearing their heads. Watch this space. Who knows what new surprises are just around the corner from this famous region.
