This wine has great length and structure where the fruit more than matches the fine tannin structure.
Battle of Bosworth make terrific Cabernets and this a case in point.
Expect black and blue fruits on the nose, lovely classy oak mixed in amongst it all, with blackberry and blackcurrant on the palate with great length and texture and a fine tannin structure.
What the winery has to say: As organic producers we can’t use blending components from other vineyards, or indeed other regions, even if we wanted to. We have to create our own blending components in the vineyard and winery in various ways to add complexity to our wines. All of the red wines under our Battle of Bosworth label are Vegan Friendly.
Where this wine comes from - McLaren Vale
Just south of Adelaide in South Australia, McLaren Vale is a red wine drinker’s haven, producing rich, velvety textured reds the state is known for. Looking over St Vincent Gulf, the maritime influence in McLaren Vale helps to keep summer temperatures down while the steady temperatures are perfect for producing balanced reds that are certainly easy on the palate. In a similar vein to the Barossa, McLaren Vale hangs its hat on Shiraz, but similarly, Grenache and Mourvèdre play a strong supporting role – perhaps outshining the star of the show on occasion! Certainly its GSM blends deserve recognition, producing seamless wines. Enjoying its Mediterranean climate, it comes as no surprise that the wines of McLaren Vale are perfect with hearty Italian dishes – ragout, pizza, or an antipasto platter – you can’t go wrong.
