Battle of Bosworth 2006 War of the Rosé
Winery/Brand: Battle of Bosworth
The War of the Rosé has a bright magenta colour with a touch of purple. The nose shows lively cut grass, red cherry fruit and watermelon rind. The palate is super long, bright and clean, with fresh cherry fruit bound up with perfectly balanced acid and tremendous length. The wine finishes dry, clean and wonderfully fresh.
Vintage 2006: good winter rains, a week of hot weather in January that the vines coped well with, followed by cool dry ideal ripening conditions in the lead up to vintage. Result? The whites are varietal with excellent acidity, and the reds are stylish and filled with potential...
“Lots of reasons to like this: long, clean, cherried flavours;refreshing acidity; no hard phenolics typical of some cheaper rosés; and it’s certified organic. Made from Cabernet, the wine has just enough mid-palate richness thanks to the 5.5 per cent residual sugar. Grown in McLaren Vale by Joch Bosworth and made with a bit of help from Ben Riggs. Top quality.” Ben Canaider and Greg Duncan Powell, The Sydney Morning Herald Good Living November 21st 2006
