2011 Battle of Bosworth Best of Vintage

imageAs the name suggests, this is a blend of the best grapes produced by Battle of Bosworth’s certified organic estate vineyards each year. 47% Cabernet, 37% Shiraz and 16% Petit Verdot. A lengthy decant is advised for now.

Violets, wet tobacco, blackcurrants and mulberry with mocha oak, leaf and dusty earthen spice. Has quite enough flesh to harness the acidity generated by vintage conditions. Tannin is ripe and long. Sweeter notes initially sit just beneath autumnal influences but in time those opulent primary fruits sing. Some minty lift. Worthy of applause. 93
