"Dark and inky in the glass. Brooding aromas of stewed plum, dried herbs, mulberry, anise and spice. Voluminous on the palate, dark and juicy with licorice, bramble and sweet oak. There's balance here though, via grainy textured tannins and bright, punchy acidity. Opulent and smart value. Drink: Now-2033"

BOB aim to please with their Bosworth Shiraz. The objective is to make a well-balanced, delicious, medium-bodied wine with strong regional characters and to this end they keep winemaking techniques simple, and traditional. Grapes are picked on flavour and sugar ripeness, then crushed them and sent the to open fermenters. The wine finishes fermenting in barrel; Using a combination of new and old French and American oak. A small percentage of cordon cut, vine dried Shiraz is added to the wine prior to bottling.

ABOUT BATTLE OF BOSWORTH - ORGANIC WINES 

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
