Battle of Bosworth ‘Chanticleer’ Single Vintage Shiraz

2011 – Deep red/purple colour. rich chocolate and mocha aromas to the fore. A meaty, vegetable edge in the background. A big, full-bodied and chewy textured wine, with lots of weight and alcohol and grip. Massive, dense, concentrated and needs much more time. Tremendous length and tannin structure. Impressive stuff. Has the makings of a great bottle in time. 95 Points (Huon Hooke Real Review)

2018  – Full bodied. Blueberry, anise and violet. Pulpy and energetic, with the oak evincing a grippy authority, curtailing any excess while streaming the flavours long. French wood has imparted a creamy integration between fruit and wood tannins. This works well. 93 Points (Halliday Wine Companion, Ned Goodwin MW)

Battle of Bosworth Shiraz

2010  – ‘A wine with meat, spice and dark fruits on the nose, follow through to a full-bodied palate, and soft silky tannins with a long finish. Polished and fascinating93 points (The Wine Advocate #198 December 2011)

2021  – Dark and inky in the glass. Brooding aromas of stewed plum, dried herbs, mulberry, anise and spice. Voluminous on the palate, dark and juicy with licorice, bramble and sweet oak. There’s balance here though, via grainy textured tannins and bright, punchy acidity. Opulent and smart value. 92 Points. Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Battle of Bosworth Cabernet Sauvignon

2012  – It’s partly the organic viticulture, partly the vintage, partly the long-established synergy between the region and the variety, and partly the good winemaking that have jointly given birth to this medium-bodied, expressive wine that sews together cassis, black olive, dark chocolate and ripe tannins. 93 Points Halliday Wine Companion

2019 – Currant, olive, mint, thyme, lavender, a swab of black-olive paste and sage-rolled tannins. 92 points Halliday Wine Companion Ned Goodwin MW
