Battle Of Bosworth White Label Pinot Noir 2015 (6x 75cl)

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, owing its fame to a series of outstanding single-vineyard wines made from estate-grown fruit. Owner, Joch Bosworth, is regarded as a brilliant organic farmer as well as a top class winemaker, and the Bosworth vineyards are among the most beautiful we have ever seen. Joch plays down his impeccable green credentials, arguing that he is doing nothing new: ‘A lot of what we do in the vineyard is simply old-fashioned grape growing; essentially, our vineyards are run as they would have been 50 years ago before synthetic pesticides and fertilizers became available.’

A pretty little flower called the soursob is Joch’s partner in crime to combat weeds. So important is the soursob that it features on the Battle of Bosworth labels, too.

In deference to the warm climate they pick the Pinot early and make it more like a Beaujolais than a Burgundy because they want to make a wine with soft tannins and gentle aromas on the strawberry end of the spectrum. To do this about 30% of the grapes are put through carbonic maceration. The grapes are hand-picked and allowed to ferment (without being crushed) in plastic bags in apple crates. The balance of the grapes are processed in a fairly standard red winemaking fashion; crushed, fermented, pressed off skins into (predominantly older) oak before blending back to the ‘cab mac’ component and bottling.

There are beautiful ripe red fruits on the nose – think plums and strawberries along with a light, alluring spice. The Bosworth Pinot Noir is a middle weight wine with red fruit running through the palate and framed within lovely tannins. This wine goes very well with cheeses, chicken dishes and charcuterie.

Mohua Pinot Noir Peregrine Wines 2014 (1 x 75cl)

Mohua PN 2014 - Sept 2016 Decanter review

Peregrine Wines is named in honour of New Zealand’s endemic falcon, a bird without rival or fear. A bird that combines both power and finesse, the essence of Peregrine’s range of wines. The McLachlan family, headed by Lindsay, were one of the first to establish plantings in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago in 1999, and are now the largest organic vineyard holder in Central Otago. Farming operation plays an integral role in the organic management of the vineyards. Cattle assist with compost, goats and sheep are used for weed control in the winter, and chickens are rotated around the vineyard courtesy of a mobile chicken house, naturally dealing to a range of bugs.

The winery roof is modelled to replicate the exact rotation of the Peregrine falcon’s wing in flight. In London in 2004 the architect won the UK based AR+D Emerging Architecture awards for the Peregrine Winery building, and in 2005 received the “Supreme New Zealand Architecture” award from the NZ Institute of Architects.

Bursting with floral aromas and redcurrant perfume, this Pinot Noir is rich and juicy with delicious raspberry, hints of strawberry and spice flavours. If you want to match this with food we would suggest that lamb or duck would be good choices as well as any dish including salami or other cold meats.

Richmond Plains Pinot Noir 2013 (1x 75cl)

Richmond Plains Pinot Noir is made in an elegant, appealing style which can be enjoyed when young but will also benefit from a little cellaring allowing it to develop more complex characters. It has a dark cherry nose with chocolate and raspberry whilst the palate has earthy, forest fruits with cherry. The making of the wine was comparatively simple: The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed and transferred to open fermenters. After a period of cold maceration for 4 days the juice was inoculated for fermentation. Regular hand plunging over 10 days was carried out in the winery. Approximately 70% of the juice was transferred into a mixture of French oak barriques with the remainder being held in tank.

£15.66
