The ball and chain, the trouble and strife… or as we call her in 2020, the dearly beloved wife. And who wouldn’t want to be married to this delicious rose? Crisp as heck, dry like our sense of humour with a wild fruitiness and hint of vanilla, it’s the rose of our dreams. At the thought of a sip, we’re already on bended knee...

 

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

"Sourced from a select premium vineyard on the boarders of the two villages of Bethany and Vine Vale in the Barossa Valley. Grown by 6th generational grape growers the Hage family the this flat site is varying depths of sand / sandy loams overlaying red clays and shale and situated at 316 metres above sea level. The fruit is handpicked at optimum ripeness and flavour profile ensuring overall balance before being gently destemmed to keep as many whole berries as possible and then soaked on skins for 12 to 24 hours, capturing the essence of the fruit but with fine tannins before being gently pressed and fermented."

FOOD MATCH

Who are we kidding? While we’d love to recommend some haute cuisine here, we know the reality and the reality is a loose afternoon in the honeyed HK sunshine with far too many distractions to get stuck in the kitchen. Make a cheeseboard and call it a day, that’s our advice.
