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.
