Ballycroft Small Berrys American Oak Shiraz 2010

Charry, sweet, coconutty oak over black fruit compote. Black inky depth with fruit to match, a little chocolate augmenting the fruit and oak profile.

Thick, glycerol mouthfeel, licorice, blueberry. A wedge of oak riven through the wine - it works, supporting the wine and providing a framework to work around. Good length, black fruit and pepper aound, sweet-ish fruit concludes. 90 - Good 

Tasted on: Friday 8th February, a Fruit Day
