Origin: Barossa Valley
Region: South Australia
Style: Full-bodied red wine aged in new French oak
Deep violet in the glass. Highly pronounced aromas of ripe, almost jammy black & red fruit, sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs. Bit of carbonic notes of ripe banana and bubble gum. Full-bodied with sweet ripe tannins that are not overly pronounced and are very well-balanced with the concentration of flavors. The alcohol is high with an acidity that seems to naturally complement the wine.
In 2004, Tomfoolery started as a “fun” project, but over a decade and a half, this duo managed to produce some serious results. Ben “Chippy” Chipman and Toby “Yappy” Yap never tried to pigeonhole themselves with certain labels and their mission was clear – make pure expressions of the beautiful places where their grapes are grown. Find copious appeal for refreshing whites, rich reds and paler shades of rosé.
