Tomfoolery - '19 Young Blood Grenache, Barossa Valley SA
Varietal: 100% Grenache
Winemaking: The fruit is open fermented utilising native yeasts, with 30% whole bunch in the mix.

This combination was used to showcase structure and varietal character, while retaining freshness and finesse.
Nose: Bright red fruit with more subtle notes of leaf and herb.
Palate: Strawberry, mulberry and cherry fruit with a savoury finish.
