2015 Penley Estate Gryphon Red Blend

If you studied Greek mythology you would know what Gryphon is or means.  If you didn’t, you’re not alone.  I’m with you on that.

As it turns out it is a mythical creature made up of two not so mythical creatures.  Now, depending on which image you look at, the Gryphon can be both elegant and, dare I say it, an ugly looking beast.

Being only two years old, from Coonawarra, and a blend of varieties that tend to do well in that popular Aussie wine zone, you know it is always going to be a fresh, vibrant, fleshy, initially dark fruit forward wine.  Tannins stump up at the finish.  Maybe a little chalky/powdery but the fruit helped out here too.

There’s nothing mythical about this beautiful beast.  It’s genuine, it’s real and it’s easy to catch and keep.
