Picked 531kg from 2 acres, now that’s intense.
Mostly plunged over for 9 days as there was not enough juice to pump over.
This wine was matured for 28 months in a selected AP John American Oak barrel, resulting in a glass coating deep dark exuberant red wine. On the nose luscious dark blueberry jam with hints of dark chocolate.
The soft integrated oak mellows out the heavy Petite Sirah tannins with a smooth concentrated length.

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.
