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.
It pours a pale staw colour with a slight haze. It smells floral, perfumey with a touch of citrus. The palate is light to medium bodied, racy, fine and fresh - crisp citrus dominates, with a slight phenolic grip drying things out in the finish. Delicious fine dry white wine. 750ml equivalent $18.5/bottle. Incredible value for money.
