Ballasalla Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Ballasalla is the second label of the very highly regarded Folding Hill brand, based on a 4ha Pinot Noir vineyard planted in the Bendigo region of Central Otago. Tim Kerruish heads a syndicate of owners who established the vineyard in 2003. They have Fred Reinds as their winemaker. Ballasalla employs the fruit in barrels not included in the premium cuvee, and includes fruit grown at a slightly high crop loading (approx. 7t/ha) especially for the label. It is named after the small village on the Isle of Man where Tim grew up, and means ‘place of willows’. The wine has proven to be a success and sells quickly. Here, I review the new 2016 vintage release.
