"Very bright purple colour, young and bold with aromas of blueberry muffin, bold and simple, with good intensity of fruit and balanced acidity, soft fine tannins in the background. Just needs more maturation. Drink: 2025-2035"
89 Points | Huon Hooke, The Real Review, Jan 2024

"Best Blend" Trophy Winner at Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show 2023. 

'Heretic' is a beautiful blend of Touriga from Portugal, Mataro from France, Graciano from Spain (Rioja) and Shiraz from God’s country, McLaren Vale.. ‘Heretic’ is super bright and lively with hints of red fruits and bergamot on the nose. It is a mid-weight wine, showing blue fruits on the palate. It is an incredibly lively wine with long, light, fine and bright tannins and a freshness on the finish which is delicious. 


Battle of Bosworth (and Spring Seed Wine Co) makes organically grown and certified wines from family vineyards located near the township of Willunga in McLaren Vale, South Australia. The brand was established in 2001 by Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemsley-Smith, and makes wine using vineyards planted in the 1970’s by Joch’s parents. Battle of Bosworth takes its name from the original Battle of Bosworth, fought on Bosworth Field, Leicestershire, England in 1485. The Spring Seed wines are also made from our organically grown grapes. The labels for these wines were inspired by turn of the last century flower seed packets.

Owned and run by Joch Bosworth (viticulture and winemaking) and partner Louise Hemsley-Smith (sales and marketing), this winery takes its name from the battle that ended the War of the Roses, fought on Bosworth Field in 1485. The vineyards were established in the early '70s in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges. The vines are fully certified A-grade organic. Shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay account for 75% of the plantings. The Spring Seed Wine Co wines are made from estate vineyards. - JAMES HALLIDAY
