'Puritan' Shiraz {no added preservative} 2011

Battle of Bosworth produced their first preservative-free shiraz in 2010, and were so encouraged by both the experience of making it (the wine retained amazing fruit freshness, despite having no protection from SO2) and the positive response from their customers, that they repeated the exercise in the cooler, wetter 2011 vintage. It’s a very bold, juicy, essencey young red – pure purple fruit – but there’s lovely complexity here, too: some wild herbs and a bit of game.
