Origin: Adelaide Hills
Region: South Australia
Grape(s): Pinot Gris
Style: Light-bodied, crisp white wine made using tank method
A nice, refreshing and fruity Pinot Gris that lies somewhere between the refreshing yet simple (and often tasteless) Italian Pinot Grigio and the more fruitier and rounder style of German Grauburgunder. This wine is a bit lighter and somewhat higher in acidity than your average Pinot Gris, but it also has much more fruit and depth than your run-of-the-mill Pinot Grigio. Overall this is quite reliable and tasty effort, making it a good everyday wine for a wide variety of food. Perhaps best served with white meats, grilled fish or heavier salads.
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.
