Tom Foolery Young Blood Grenache 2017
Full bodied: Soft, sweet fruits - so drinkable! An incredibly juicy elegant wine.
Tasting Notes: This small, open batch fermented, unoaked and unfiltered wine is a beautiful, full bodied Barossa red. Plums and bright juicy berries dominate the flavour spectrum, with fine tannins and refreshing balancing acidity finish off this easy drinking wine..
Drink it while young and foolish, or while remembering an enjoyably misspent youth - that's what it was made for!
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.
