2016 Tomfoolery Son of a Gun Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz – Case
2016 Tomfoolery Son of a Gun Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz .This is a dedication to the favorite Barossa blend of the old guns, from their proud sons. 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.
The Barossa Valley fruit is handpicked at optimum ripeness and flavor profile ensuring overall balance before being gently destemmed to keep as many whole berries and then open fermented for a minimum of five days with the juice being pumped over the skins twice daily to maximize oxygenation and purity of fermentation. Once the wine is dry it is then gently basket pressed minimizing the extraction of harsh extractive tannins.

“Barossa incorporates both the Barossa Valley and Eden Valleys, making it one of the only wine regions in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. With such a diversity of growing conditions and soil types across both valleys and vineyards that have been tended by hand for many generations, you are bound to find a wine to call your own.”
