Gonzo Vino is a project by wine journeyman, Marcus Radny who had a revelation in 2018 that there was a gap in the boxed wine market for a serious product. Purely from a sustainability angle, cask wine makes sense - all materials are recyclable, storage & transport are far more efficient due to the lack of neutral space, as an added bonus - the wine stays fresh for 8 weeks once opened, far reducing the risk of wine waste - although if you can have one open and not finish it within 8 weeks you're doing well here. All fruit is from the Riverland, grown using organic practises, all fruit is hand picked and all wine is made without fining or filtation, so they're vegan friendly.
The rather cleverly named "Cancel the Plans" is made from the relatively unknown Tinta Barocca variety which was propagated by Yalumba's nursery program. Typically used in Portugal for Vintage Port. Another outstanding nose; bright red fruit, a touch of redskin lolly, a little vanilla and creamy soda vibes. The palate is medium bodied, dry, fine and full of red fruit flavours. Another absolutely lovely table wine by Marcus. 750ml bottle equivalent price is $18.
