Battle of Bosworth ‘Best of Vintage’ 2011
If this were the 1980's we would have called this wine the Bosworth Family Reserve, or Bosworth Barrel Selection. Joch chose the very best wines from his favourite barrels from the best batches of Cabernet (47%), Shiraz (37%) and Petit Verdot (16%) from vintage 2011. All three batches were individually fermented in open vessels and then finished off ferment in barrel. The Petit Verdot also spent an extended period of time on skins. We used a mix of new and old predominantly French oak barrels, with a couple of new American barrels thrown in for good measure.
