A preservative-free, smooth and easy drinking Australian red wine with damson, blueberry and dark chocolate notes. Drinks really nicely on its own or will pair well with red meats and medium to mature cheeses.

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, owing its fame to a series of outstanding single-vineyard wines made from estate-grown fruit. Owner, Joch Bosworth, is regarded as a brilliant organic farmer as well as a top class winemaker.
Joch plays down his impeccable green credentials, arguing that he is doing nothing new: ‘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.’
A pretty little flower called the Soursob is Joch’s partner in crime to combat weeds. So important is the Soursob that it features on the Battle of Bosworth labels, too. Joch’s results speak for themselves: smart, juicy wines with plenty of ripe Aussie fruit.
