2017 Ballycroft Small Berry Fortified Vintage

$45.00

Sold in cartons of 12

Handpicked 500kg by Sue, myself and David Henderson on 23/3/2017.

A lovely 15º Be slowly fermented for 7 days then added 42 litres of 6 year old brandy spirit. Followed by 12 months in old French Oak. This wine consists of 70% Shiraz and 30% Durif.

Intense complexity. Waves of ripe blackberries and spicy ginger and red peppers flow through to velvet silky walnuts. Finishing with an overwhelming opulent length and entwined sophisticated spirit.

Keep this for 20 years if you have the years left in you otherwise drink it now and please brag about it.

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.
Join Joe, the owner, winemaker, vineyard hand and cellar door manager (or Sue) for a unique and intimate cellar door experience. Joe is involved in every process of the grapes journey, carefully tending them from vine to bottle and everything inbetween and has over 25 vintages under his belt.  Plus he loves to talk about wine so be prepared to settle in for a while.
