2014 Ballycroft Small Berry Old Oak Durif

$35.00

Sold in cartons of 6

We planted 2 acres of Durif (Petite Sirah) in 2010. These bird pecked tiny berries were picked for the first time with Florian, Dean and Corina in early April.

This wine is 70% Greenock and 30% Krondorf fruit. Fermented for only 8 days pumping/plunging 4 times a day to broaden the mid palate adding length and elegance.

Resulting in a dark inky black colour with fresh mulberry fruit flavours. A monstrous meaty tannic mid palate with soft vibrant finish ending in vanilla American oak.

This very moorish monster needs to be cellared then decanted to truly enjoy its complexity.

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.
