Tasting Notes for Battle of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz - no added preservative from the Winery

Drink Puritan now, don’t stash it in your cellar! Bright red and dark fruits on the nose, as well as damsons, chocolate and blueberries on the palate wrapped up with fine grained subtle tannins. Drink with a juicy steak, if that’s your thing, or chill on a hot day and have it when you’ve had enough of white wines.

VINTAGE

Good winter and early spring rains were followed by a generally dry and mild growing season. After the leaner vintages of 2019 and 2020 it was nice to see a return to long term average crop levels. We had a slow and steady ripening period without any excessive heat spikes which has resulted in super varietal fruit intensity and balanced natural acidity.

A Mary Poppins kind of vintage; practically perfect! Joch is always loathe to comment favourably about vintage quality,  for fear of jinxing things – he can be superstitious like that, but by the end of harvest, the word ‘exceptional’ was heard to come out of his mouth.

WINEMAKING

The idea behind Puritan is to make a young, vibrant early drinking red wine. We looked to the ‘vino Joven’ style of Spanish red wines for inspiration, which are unoaked and drunk in their infancy.

Standard Bosworth winemaking procedures were followed when making Puritan; we pick and ferment the grapes, then allow the wine to go through its secondary (malolactic, or ‘malo’) fermentation. We bottle the Puritan immediately after it has gone through malo, without the addition of any sulphur dioxide (preservative), or putting the wine into oak barrels. Fresh, fresh, fresh!
