About The Wine
The Cabernet/Shiraz partnership is one that is unique to Australia.
This classic wine style has deep roots in the Barossa Valley. Here, winemaker Ben Chipman pays homage to the pioneering winemakers of the past who paved the way for the current generation of Barossa winemakers.
"The classic Barossa ‘Claret’ is the marrying of our region’s great varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. From an early age we learnt to appreciate and respect this traditional Barossa wine style as a true example of varietal harmony." - Ben Chipman
It's a robust wine of deep-set fruit and suede-like feel. Rich and opulent, this is a modern tip of the cap to the great wines of Australia's past.
Ben "Chippy" Chipman and Toby "Yappy" Yap are the fools of Tomfoolery.
Their brand is built on a simple philosophy: "small parcels of fruit, hand-crafted through a simple and relatively non-interventional approach with the aim to truly reflect the individual characteristics of the vineyard and variety. Tomfoolery wines are made with old world simplicity in a new world of wine."
