Battle of Bosworth 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon
Winery/Brand: Battle of Bosworth
On the nose the Cabernet shows red fruits, fruits of the forest and fresh, well-integrated oak with a hint of floral and cedar notes. There is also a hint of star anise with a touch of musk too. The wine has a fresh, even and balanced palate with lovely mouth-coating fine tannins.

Winemaking: Traditionally made in open fermenters and matured in a mixture of both old (60%) and new (40%) French and American oak. Of the new oak component, 90% was French and the balance American. The Cabernet Sauvignon has benefited from the addition of a small percentage of ‘cordon cut’ ‘Amarone’ style Cabernet which was left to dry on the vine for about two weeks after harvest. Separately fermented and matured, it was blended back just prior to bottling. This ‘Amarone’ style component adds an interesting twist to this single vineyard wine.
