This page is a sample of all the cask wine I have drunk in my goon days and will be updated each time I try a new cask. I will try to update this is much as possible, not saying I don't drink goon enough to be worthy to make this site, but I usually find a nice drop and stick to it.

The man behind the magic:
What cask wine should I sample next? RSS
It is a sad day for the cask wine community as South Australian Riverland grape grower Thomas Angove has died. Thomas Angrove is the man behind the cask wine magic who had the brains to put a plastic resealable bag inside of a cardboard box.
“His commitment and involvement in industry matters and industry bodies and the welfare of the industry overall, as opposed to just Angove family winemakers, was very significant and I think reflects his very broad vision of what the world and life was all about.” [ABC]
May we all raise a glass of cask wine to this wonderful man and drown our sorrows in his very invention.
velvetyouth asked: You MUST sample Daybreak Estate Fruity Lexia; it is a fairly new cask-wine to the local bottl-o so be sure to tear the virginal box apart with ease. X
Yeah I have had Daybreak Estate before, I really enjoy it and love how it is 5 Liters. I’ll make sure to review it next!
missvetty-deactivated20120319 asked: Golden Oak, Fruity Lexia.
It's my favorite and its the cheapest!
Thank you for the input the review has now been completed, keep asking for new reviews!
Brand: Golden Oak
Style: Fruit Lexia
Golden Oak Fruit Lexia is up there and destined to be one of the number one cask wines based on taste and affordability. I am not saying it is the best and never will say that about any cask wine, but it is worth it for the cost and taste. Another bonus of Golden Oak Fruity Lexia is that it can be found pretty much across most bottle-os and the price never changes. It has a nice smooth nozzle for those enjoying the flavours straight from the mouth of the monster. It has a nice flavour to it and is easy to down, so if you are looking for an easy night on the goon, maybe you are broke and just
need want to get drunk, who knows the many motives behind drinking a fine cask wine but this encompasses them all.
Sorry everyone who follows this blog as I have only one post. I have been really lazy with this lately, I have been drinking my fair share of cask wine but just keep forgetting to write about it the next day.
Also sorry to Silent Outrage and Is She Weird? for not replying and yes to both of you Goldan Oak Fruity Lexia is probably one of the best choice out there and it will be reviewed but I need to stop being a lazy cask wine drinker.
So as I sit here drinking a Stanly Fruit Lexia (which will hopefully be reviewed tomorrow depending on work/more goon tomorrow night) I will make a promise to you all that more reviews are on the way!
Style: Fruit Lexia
Coolabah Fruity Lexia is a fine drop of cask wine but it does have a few flaws which does not make it my number one choice of goon. Firstly they are charging around $5 more then other just as good tasting wines, bringing the price to $15. Secondly the stupid nozzle on the bag is sharp, pointy and half the time just trickles out of the sac and takes you a whole night to fill your cup/stomach.
