Battle Of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz is modelled on young Tempranillo of Spain's famous Rioja region. Somewhat uncommonly for McLaren Vale Shiraz, Puritan sees no oak and is bottled as soon as malolactic fermentation is complete with no added preservatives.
The 2021 Battle Of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz is a fresh, vibrant expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz; packed with red and black fruits, black cherry, violets and a touch of liquorice. Beautifully approachable and fruit driven, this offers loads of appeal as an early drinking proposition red wines.
"Battle of Bosworth’s Joch Bosworth was one of the early pioneers of organic viticulture in McLaren Vale. His own edict and belief are that good wine is made in the vineyard, and this is exactly where they start. This wine is also preservative-free, so those folk that have a reaction to sulphites should give this very drinkable wine a crack. Inky black in the glass. Very pure and lifted aromas of mulberry, plums, eucalyptus, chalk and spice. Fleshy, full-flavoured and juicy on the palate, a wine with lush fruits and spice. Plum, blackberry, graphite, cola and sweet spices. The tannins are firm and chalky and the acidity is crunchy, fresh and lively. Youthful and very gluggable. Preservative-free, so consume early on. Screwcap"- Aaron Brasher, The Real Review.
Joch and Louise have been growing their grapes organically for over 21 years. Joch's vision saw him convert 24 acres of vines to organic viticulture in 1995. In 1999 they gained their organic certification from ACO P/L (Australian Certified Organic). This process represented a big leap of faith in many regards, not least because in those days 'organic' was not the buzzword it is today. Their vineyards were the first in McLaren Vale to achieve organic certification too and they were the very first winery to release an organic wine.
While well-known for their organic certification, the outstanding quality of wines produced at Battle Of Bosworth should not be overlooked. These are wines of flavour, texture, purity and balance, with some of the region's leading examples of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano currently being crafted by the team at Battle Of Bosworth.
