Joch and Louise have been growing their grapes organically for over 21 years. Joch's vision saw him convert 24 acres of vines to organic viticulture in 1995. In 1999 they gained their organic certification from ACO P/L (Australian Certified Organic). This process represented a big leap of faith in many regards, not least because in those days 'organic' was not the buzzword it is today. Their vineyards were the first in McLaren Vale to achieve organic certification too and they were the very first winery to release an organic wine.
While well-known for their organic certification, the outstanding quality of wines produced at Battle Of Bosworth should not be overlooked. These are wines of flavour, texture, purity and balance, with some of the region's leading examples of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano currently being crafted by the team at Battle Of Bosworth.
TASTING NOTES: It does what is says on the tin: Puritan is bright, young fresh, juicy, full of dark and red fruits and plums and blackberries, too. Great colour, dark purple, giving big hints as to its youth, with a bright palate with some great texture and weight, and some lovely tannins, and considerable length too. Do not pass go, open immediately and drink.
