Battle of Bosworth Organic Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Our Price: $22.99 / bottle
(RRP $30.00)

Case: 12 bottles

The Boz Cab has red/ black fruits on the nose, so think redcurrants blackberries and blackcurrants. There is a freshness which verges on mint. Overall the wine is lively and medium-bodied and very fresh. It has a structured but accessible palate and for those that have patience it will cellar very well, but if you haven’t got time for all that waiting, it will drink well now.

  • If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it….this saying really gives me the pip but in reality it holds very true for how we make this wine; we use old tried and true wine making techniques year in and year out. We pick the Cabernet when it is flavour and sugar ripe, then crush it and ferment it in small open vessels. Fermentation finishes in barrel; we use mainly old oak (about 70%) and the balance in new mainly French hogsheads (300l) barrels. We blend back some of our cordon cut, vine dried Cabernet to the wine just prior to bottling, a practise we have undertaken since we began making the wine. That’s it.

    Sweet fruit flows through the palate, resiny/creamy oak helping it along its way. Nothing sticks out, nothing is either under- or overdone, nothing is awry, it just gets the job done in soft, harmonious fashion.
