Winery/Brand: Battle of Bosworth


Colour: deep dark red with bright purple edges. On the nose: spice and black pepper, dark red fruits and a whiff of violets. The palate: as befits the wine’s McLaren Vale provenance, is full and even, balanced between rich red fruit and chocolate with a liquorish finish. More than the sum of its parts, the 2006 Shiraz Viognier is a balanced wine with a wonderful perfume, richness, length and persistence.



The Story

Winemaking: Traditionally made in open fermenters, finishing fermentation in a mixture of old and new French and American oak.

Vintage 2008: Average winter rains were followed by a very cool and dry late January/ February, resulting in very healthy vines with big canopies and intensely varietal fruit which held their acidity extraordinarily well.
