2017 Ballycroft Small Berry Shiraz American Oak

$49.00

Sold in cartons of 6

The same friends lovingly hand picked 2.5 tonne from 2 acres of dry grown vines on March 11th 2017.

Flavour ripe and good acidity, I made this wine in the same method as the shiraz above, but instead matured it in bone dry, shaved out AP John American Oak for 28 months.

This dense deep dark red offers loads of succulent blackberry fruit and crushed vanilla pod nose. The barberry fruit bursts in to the whole palate ending in a sweet ‘Bounty’ coconut oak which lingers for more than a minute. Rich luscious exceptional length.

This is the kind of Barossa Shiraz I fell in love with long ago. Only share this balanced beast with your best friends over the next 20 years.

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.
