Remarkably good, juicy nose of classic SA cherry and vanilla with a little medicinal element too. Some Rioja elements in there as well – bit of dusty leather and baking spices. Fine palate of dark fruit with good balance and a satisfying finish. Excellent value.
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.
