This one goes out to the Barossa Valley old guns from their proud sons. A classic ‘claret’ takes the region’s iconic varietals to make something harmonious as Beethoven’s greatest symphony (see also: that 2am karaoke performance that you almost certainly nailed). Expect a satisfyingly full-flavoured wine with plenty of backbone.


As you might’ve guessed, Tomfoolery aren’t averse to messing around. Ben "Chippy" Chipman and Toby "Yappy" Yap take their old-wine-world know how to make new world Barossa Valley drops that pack a whole lot of yum. With each of their handmade wines, Tomfoolery leverages just the right amount of mischief with a low-intervention approach to see where the grape’s potential takes them (and yep, it’s Destination Delicious every time).

FROM THE WINEMAKER

"The fruit is handpicked at optimum ripeness and flavour profile ensuring overall balance before being gently destemmed to keep as many whole berries and then open fermented for a minimum of five days with the juice being pumped over the skins twice daily to maximize oxygenation and purity of fermentation. Once the wine is dry it is then gently basket pressed minimizing the extraction of harsh extractive tannins."

FOOD MATCH

The name of the game here is… game. Those rich, meaty flavours just work with a wine this fully flavoured. You could even say it’s game changing stuff...
