Preservative Free Shiraz 2010


‘Battle of Bosworth aka husband and wife team Joch and Louise have long been advocates of organic winemaking but this is the first time they’ve gone even more natural. A preservative free Shiraz made in the Joven style (Spanish for drink now) so its spent no time in oak and is freshly bottled. It is a wine that speaks of the Vale, it’s got a gorgeous fruit signature with black cherry and blackcurrant to the fore with notes of spice. The palate is silky, fruity, and moreish held together by supple tannins and firm acids. Great drinking at the price.’
