Description

Battle of Bosworth Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon with red and black fruits on the nose, fine tannins, great length and persistence, and a medium body. The oak is nicely integrated and the result is a super wine from a splendid vintage.

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, producing a series of outstanding single vineyard wines from estate grown fruit. Owner Joch Bosworth is regarded as a brilliant viticulturalist as well as a top class winemaker. Joch plays down his impeccable green credentials, arguing that he is doing nothing new and that “a lot of what we do in the vineyard is simply old-fashioned grape growing; essentially, our vineyards are run as they would have been 50 years ago before synthetic pesticides and fertilizers became available.”

Organic farming is based on minimising the use of external inputs, and as such their certified organic grapes are grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers, or GMOs. The system of organic viticulture at Battle of Bosworth works with nature rather than against it, and by keeping harmful chemicals out of the land, water and air, creates a healthy environment rich in flora, fauna and nutrients; the perfect environment for growing the very best quality wine grapes.

Joch combats any weeds in partnership with the Soursob (oxalis pes-caprae), the pretty yellow flower which also features on the Battle of Bosworth label. Growing rapidly under vine with the onset of winter rains, the Soursob out-competes other weeds in winter and forms a natural weed mat in spring and summer. The lifecycle of the Soursob fits very well with the grape vine as it uses water in winter when the vine is dormant and dies off in summer as the vines’ water requirements increases.

Peter Lehmann Mentor Cabernet 2014

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
