Battle of Bosworth makes single vineyard, organically grown wines from our family vineyards located in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Battle of Bosworth was established in 2001 by Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemsley-Smith. The wines take their name from the original Battle of Bosworth, fought on Bosworth Field, Leicestershire, England in 1485.

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.

Vintage Notes: Wanderer is made using a few different vintages of Petit Verdot, a grape variety which hails originally from Bordeaux. This allows us to create a blend with complexity and freshness.

Winemaking: Later ripening Petit Verdot from our vineyard block up near cellar door is gently picked before being taken down the hill to the winery to be crushed before undergoing open fermentation. Once through ferment, the PV is pressed off skins and sent to stainless steel vessels. It doesn’t spend any time in oak, as we want to retain the wonderful dark fruit vibrancy of the variety. In a similar vein to the Spring Seed Blanc de Blancs (Gypsy), the Wanderer is sent off after ferment and ageing on the vinous equivalent of a Grand Tour to find its fizz. In this case, the Wanderer is sent up to a winery in the Barossa, whereas the English Gentleman in the 17th and 18th Centuries went off around Europe to learn about classical antiquity and mix with the great families and houses on the continent. The Wanderer then returns home, enlightened and ready to be sent into polite society to be enjoyed. By you, that is.

Tasting Note: ‘Wanderer’ is an elegant yet full bodied sparkling red made using our own home-grown organic Petit Verdot. It has a vibrant bright purple colour, with a nose ripe with blueberries, plum, black cherry and a hint of violets. It is perfect as an aperitif or can enjoyed with a variety of food. Serve chilled.
