2018 Ballycroft Small Berry Montepulciano

$25.00

Sold in cartons of 6

We hand picked just over 2 tonne of magnificent Montepulciano on the 6th of April from The Case families Langhorne Creek vineyard.

Fermented this violet/magenta fruit with 25% whole bunches in the mix and softly plunged over 8 days. Lightly pressed for 2 hours then left in old French Oak for only 6 months to extract the smoothest velvety tannins.

Elegant fresh cherry and raspberry nose with a multi layered raspberry ‘redskin’ palate with a fresh fine finish.

This wine has drinkability and is cool to serve in summer slightly chilled with your favourite Italian dish.

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.
