Drinkability defined. And a Barossa Valley body that absolutely slams. Expect a whole lotta juicy plums and red berries, cut through with a deftly balanced acidity. Unoaked and unfiltered, this one’s got enough cheek and personality to turn an alright night into a belter.


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

"Inspired by the new wave ‘Vino Joven’ wines of the old world, Young Blood Shiraz is released as a cheeky youngster with just a brief barrel maturation to showcase structure and varietal character, while retaining freshness and finesse. The fruit is open fermented utilising native yeasts, with 30% whole bunch in the mix. After 7 days maceration post-ferment, the wine is gently basket pressed and racked to stainless vats (50%) and old French oak hogsheads (50%) for 6 months maturation. Young Blood Shiraz is pure, uncomplicated enjoyment."

FOOD MATCH

A hearty number like this works really well with a red tomatoey sauce. Maybe that’s your go-to takeaway pizza, maybe it’s a pasta or a ratatouille. Take a leaf out of Tomfoolery’s notebook and stay adventurous.
