2022 Tomfoolery Young Blood Grenache Barossa Valley – The old adage, “If youth only knew; if age only could” has been attributed to many great thinkers. With each passing generation, a legacy of wisdom is passed down from the old guard to the next crop; the gift of knowledge from those who know how, to those who can. The Young Blood Grenache is their dedication to those who paved the way for our future, and our commitment to doing the same when the time comes.
Inspired by the new wave ‘Vino Joven’ wines of the old world, Young Blood Grenache 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 Grenache is pure, uncomplicated enjoyment.
Medium bodied. Soft and smooth with good fruit intensity. Expect ripe red berries interwoven with darker fruits. Nice pinch of spice and a fine tannin structure. Well rounded and ready for immediate enjoyment.
