What the Critics say
Scarlet Runner Shiraz exhibits all the hallmarks of the finest McLaren Vale Shiraz: a bright nose of berry and spice, a wonderful structured palate and a long satisfying finish. Whether consumed alone or with a range of different foods, Scarlet Runner Shiraz is a wine which will be sure to please.
"Medium-deep red-purple colour with clean and appealingly fragrant aromas of red fruits with an unusual lemony overlay. The wine is medium-full bodied and there is an appealing touch of firmness in the tannin backbone. It's fruit driven and bold, soft enough to be drinking well now, and good value for money." - 89 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review
ABOUT SPRING SEED - CERTIFIED A-GRADE ORGANIC WINES
Spring Seed Wines are made from grapes lovingly grown in the Bosworth family’s organic vineyards, located in the premium wine region of McLaren Vale, South Australia. The vineyards were established in the early 1970s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth, and are now owned and run by their son Joch (and partner Louise Hemsley-Smith), who began the conversion to organic viticulture in 1995.
The vines are fully certified ‘A’ grade organic by Australian Certified Organic (ACO P/L ), a process that takes four years and involves yearly audits and random sampling of produce. Joch Bosworth also makes Battle of Bosworth wines using grapes from our organically grown and certified vineyards.
The Spring Seed Wine labels are unashamedly inspired by vintage flower seed packets created at the turn of the last century. The colour, clarity and beauty of the original seed packets are quite remarkable. We chose three different flower images to adorn each one of our McLaren Vale wines, simply because they are quite lovely. The Forget-me-not Semillon Sauvignon Blanc has the Pot Marigold (Calendula officinalis) Forget-me-not (Myosotis spp) and Sunflower (Helianthus annuus).
