Battle of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz (no added preservative) 2018

  • Vegan Suitable
  • No Added Preservative
  • Certified Organic

Young, fresh and vibrant this wine always delivers value for money.

Vibrant dark purple colour. Lots of dark and red fruits on the nose and palate; plums, blackberries, violets and something a bit more wild. The palate is soft, but with a good structure, leading to a tasty finish with a more savoury note.

Doesn't see any oak, and one to be savoured on release.

2018 Battle of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz - no added preservative

VINTAGE

We had above average winter rainfall and although we had a dry June, we recorded decent falls in July and August. Below average rainfall was recorded in spring, and we experienced some warm spring nights. Summer rain tally was also below average despite a wet December. McLaren Vale experienced warm a warm Autumn ripening period with low rainfall. Overall vintage in McLaren Vale produced wine of excellent quality and while total tonnages were down for the season, compared to a wet and fertile 2017, the reports from winemakers on wine quality has been almost universally positive.

WINEMAKING

Puritan is our bright young thing; picked when the grapes are just ripe and full of red and black berry fruit flavour, cool fermented and then bottled once this process has finished. We don’t use any oak barrels when making Puritan as we want the Shiraz flavours to shine through. We also call Puritan a ‘Joven’ style wine – stealing the Spanish term for youthful or young. Describes the wine perfectly.

TASTING NOTES

When we say Puritan is a bright young thing, it almost precisely describes the style. It is full of dark and red fruits and plums and blackberries, too. Some bramble and violet too. Puritan has a great, vibrant dark purple colour, too which lets you know just how young it is. The palate is soft but with structure.
