Friends and family helped hand pick not quite
2 tonne from our 2 acre hilltop block of rocky blue limestone on Valentines day.
Again fermented to perfection by hand plunging and pumping over for 10 days before being basket pressed slowly andÂ directly into shaved hogs heads and then left alone forÂ 28 months.
Big blackberry plum fruits, splash of sarsaparilla . Pure plum pie on the palate with rhubarb sauce and a dollop of sweet creamy vanilla oak. Integrated mid palate with harmonious balance, flowing through to a generous length.
Only 100 dozen produced
Ballycroft was originally the name of the cheesery run by sisters Sue EvansÂ and Tracey Skepper.
Waste water was utilisedÂ to irrigate the young vines and whey used as fertilizer.
The cheesery ceased operating in 2011 but the distinctive logo still graces the Small BerryÂ wine bottles.
The vineyard, planted in 1998Â sits on a slopingÂ 15 acre property in Greenock,Â Western Barossa Valley.
In January 2016 Â Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars opened their Tasting Room, once the production room
for the cheese.
