The Weekly Review – Ben Thomas

'Puritan' Shiraz {no added preservative} 2011

This stood out in a very good line-up of certified organic wines at the Bosworth cellar door late last year. It sees no oak or preservatives. Vibrant, fresh aromas feature squashed cherries, summer berries, spice, violets, fennel and a nice bit of meaty goodness. It’s packed with fruit flavour – cherries, chocolate, violets and a touch of minerality, while on the palate you’ll find good tannin and structure with bright, youthful acid. There’s a delicious finish of cherries and summer berries – this didn’t last long.
