This glorious fruit comes from the Case family in Langhorne Creek and 1.2 tonne was carefully chosen from their Fig Tree block.
Lovely cool fermentation over 14 days on skins to broaden the fruit phenolics on the palate.
Bubble gum, blackberry, black olives and hints of black liquorice on the nose. The same flavours persist into a complex lengthy palate with sweet fig chutney mixed in the middle.
Smooth dense highly concentrated wine will live for more than 10 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.
