For ease of drinking you cannot go past Tangled Vine Estate. It is some of the smoothest goon on the market. Now, it is a Coles owned company and I, like the rest of Australia, like to think I support independent companies over a large corporate one, but I, like the rest of Australia, still just buy whatever is cheapest. My thoughts are in the right place and in the end isn’t that enough…?
The answer to that is no.
The box features a lovely bottle of wine, which is funny, as it is on a goon sack. It does, however, do its job quite well, which is making the wine look as classy as shit.
The wine has an average pour – it comes out quite pale and kind of murky.
On the nose, the Tangled Vine Estate Fruity Lexia is a little ‘on the nose’ (see what I did there?). Just kidding though, but seriously, it smells like Christmas and not a bad Christmas either. A great Christmas. The kind of Christmas people brag about. The smell is also quite sweet and a little floral. For all of you (which is a lot) looking for floral notes in goon.
The taste is great. A lot like the Day Break Estate Fruity Lexia, the wine tastes as if it has already been mixed with lemonade. The taste is also rich, almost syrupy, kind of like dessert wine. Definitely refreshing though, don’t question its ability to refresh and great for mixing, as the flavour can be easily masked.
1. Great taste.
2. Light and easy drinking.
3. 35 Standard drinks.
1. A little too rich for some.
2. A little pale.
3. Doesn’t support Australian wine.
Overall a top goon. Great taste, average alcohol content and all for only $12.
