What the Critics say
Ray Jordan's Top 100 Reds! Preservative-Free!
"Organic. Fresh coffee and mint, bramble. It’s smooth on the palate, with fine cocoa powder tannins, chewy black fruit. Plush but with juiciness too. Hint of black pepper on the nose and in the finish. Nice. Winner for the price." - The Wine Front, 90 points, July 2023
When you think of Puritan - think fresh, vibrant and YOUNG! This wine is made in the vein of Spanish ‘Joven’ style reds wines that are made from Tempranillo. Puritan is a Shiraz, however. The puritan was allowed to go through MLF (malo, or malolactic fermentation) and then bottled immediately. Puritan spends no time in oak and has no added preservatives (sulphur dioxide).
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
