This fruit has normally been sold on but was too good to let go this vintage.
This deep crimson red wine offers a thick glycerol mouth feel ,licorice, cherry cola and blueberry bouquet with a hint of black olives. The fruit bursts into the whole palate ending in a wedge of ‘Bounty’ coconut oak flow over to persistent length. More than a typical Big Barossa Shiraz.
This is worth leaving in the cellar for a long while then serving with my favourite Osco Boco.

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.
