Ballycroft Small Berry French Oak Shiraz 2012

Oak dominates the nose, an impact wine, big and bold; smells a touch pruney, desiccated fruit. 

Slick, glycerol feel on entry; spice, black fruit - but it's really about the slick feel as the wine races across the palate. 

Dense, chewy, black fruit and licorice. Generous length, the high-octane wine needs the fruit. 91

Tasted on: Saturday 12th December: Leaf to Fruit
