2017 Ballycroft Small Berry Cabernet Sauvignon

$39.00

Sold in cartons of 6

Just under 2 tonne of ideal Langhorne Creek Cabernet from the Case family was picked on 23rd April.

Juice was plunged and pumped over its skins for 12 days to extend the fruit phenolics on the mid palate.

Result is a bright crimson red wine with dark cherry and sweet raspberry flavour with hints of apple mint. Same fruits flow through to the palate with the addition of black olive and very smooth rounded integrated almond oak.

This wine is fruit driven and carries the 28 months in older French Oak with ease.

Balanced wine will live for more than 10 years.

Try with:  lamb chops with mint sauce and new potatoes.

Ballycroft was originally the name of the cheesery run by sisters Sue Evans and Tracey Skepper.

Waste water was utilised to irrigate the young vines and whey used as fertilizer.  The cheesery ceased operating in 2011 but the distinctive logo still graces the Small Berry wine bottles.
The vineyard, planted in 1998 sits on a sloping 15 acre property in Greenock, Western Barossa Valley. In January 2016  Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars opened their Tasting Room, once the production room for the cheese.
