2007 David Franz “Lehmann Family Chrissy Goon”, Grenache Cabernet. Barossa Valley. 14.5%

Chrissy Goon 1  Chrissy Goon 2  Chrissy Goon 3

Found this is the mail upon returning from my European travels earlier this year. Each year David Franz seems to send out a bottle of his “Chrissy Goon” to his good customers. Honoured that he considers me to be one of them. By the looks of the bottle, it appears all his children got involved in the design process.

Rich and heady wine. Raspberry coulis, dark macerated fruit. Coconut, vanilla, hint of bacon and pork & fennel sausages. In other words, deeply fruited, meaty and spicey.

Very rich and mouthfilling with a ripe, velvety texture.

To quote a friend whom I shared the wine with, “This is F***ing Great”

Tasted 14th March 2013

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
