Tom Foolery Young Blood Shiraz 2018
Full bodied Barossa. Plums, juicy berries, touch of acidity. Unoaked and unfiltered.
Tasting Notes: Tomfoolery Young Blood Shiraz is all about the generations - taking old-world wine techniques learned from winemakers past to make new world wines with personality and spirit. Aromas of spicy bramble, black cherry with raspberry hints.
This small, open batch fermented, unoaked and unfiltered wine is a beautiful, full bodied Barossa red. Soft damson plum with juicy red berries, a medium bodied, elegant palate. 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! The creation of two young guys, Tom Yaps and Ben Chipman. They source small parcels of fruit to make delicious, artisanal wines which combine high quality, old vine fruit with gentle, old world-style winemaking. The Young Blood Shiraz is fermented in open vats with 30% whole bunch; and then 50% goes into tank and 50% into old French barrels.
