Region: Barossa Valley, SA
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz
Tomfoolery is a family owned and run boutique winery located in the North East of the Barossa Valley with a simple winemaking philosophy: small parcels of fruit, hand crafted through a simple and relatively non-interventional approach with the aim to truly reflect the individual characteristics of the vineyard and variety. Tomfoolery wines are made with old world simplicity in a new world of wine. The style of the wines is aromatic, floral and structured with many layers of depth and intensity. A minimalistic approach incorporating a mix of traditional and modern techniques which includes indigenous yeast fermentation, whole bunch, basket pressing, spontaneous secondary fermentation and no filtration or fining.
This is a dedication to the favourite Barossa blend of the old guns, from their proud sons. The classic Barossa ‘Claret’ is the marrying of our region’s great varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. From an early age we learnt to appreciate and respect this traditional Barossa wine style as a true example of varietal harmony.
We love a good ‘Barossa Claret’, and that’s precisely what we’ve got here. Ripe, supple Shiraz with a lovely Cabernet backbone, satisfyingly full-flavoured. Great with rich gamey flavours – preferably game you’ve shot yourself, of course!
