A slightly off-the-wall style from the Bosworth crew - a 'skinsy' white field blend (AKA a natural wine). Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and a lick of Muscat à Petit Grains were picked together and co-fermented on skins for about 5 days. On the nose citrus lemongrass and spice and on the palate riverstones and citrus with soft tannins.
Heretic is Touriga from Portugal, Mataro from France, Graciano from Spain (Rioja) and Shiraz from God’s country, McLaren Vale.. ‘Heretic’ is super bright and lively with hints of red fruits and bergamot on the nose. It is a mid-weight wine, showing blue fruits on the palate. It is an incredibly lively wine with long, light, fine and bright tannins and a freshness on the finish which is delicious.
Exile is a rare beast – a 100% McLaren Vale Pinot Noir. Treated gently in the vineyard and winery, it is made like a Beaujolais – it’s a light weight luncheon wine with red fruits and a hint of strawberries on the nose; bright with a touch of spice.
‘Puritan’ is young, fresh, unoaked and preservative free. We pick it young, ferment it in open vats and bottle it immediately once it has finished fermentation. Puritan is fresh and juicy with notes of red and black berries. Vibrant and delicious.
A classic McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe tannins, blackcurrant and herbal notes on the nose, terrific length and structure and a balance; the fruit more than matches the fine tannin structure.
White Boar is our heroic Bosworth take on the rich Amarone style wines from Veneto in Italy. White Boar is 100% Shiraz (some years it is a Shiraz/ Cabernet blend) while Amarone is made using native varieties. Our grapes are cordon cut and vine dried, which concentrates both flavour and acidity. The result is a rich, soft, layered red wine with depth, concentration, power and flavour.
