“Here’s a little ditty for chasing tail, which I promise will never fail. It’s not red and not white, she won’t put up a fight, but she may just end up in a veil.”
The Tomfoolery ‘Trouble & Strife’ Cabernet Franc Rose is sourced from a select premium vineyard on the boarders of the two villages of Bethany and Vine Vale in the Barossa Valley. Grown by 6th generational grape growers the Hage family the this flat site is varying depths of sand / sandy loams overlaying red clays and shale and situated at 316 metres above sea level.
The fruit is handpicked at optimum ripeness and flavour profile ensuring overall balance before being gently destemmed to keep as many whole berries as possible and then soaked on skins for 12 to 24 hours, capturing the essence of the fruit but with fine tannins before being gently pressed and fermented.
Colour: An elegantly subtle rose pink.
Bouquet: Grenadine and raspberry aromas with aromatic rosehip high notes and subtle cinnamon spice.
Palate: Crisp, dry and refreshing with wild strawberries, redcurrants and rose petal florals, balanced by juicy acidity and finishing with a hint of vanilla spice.
