2014 Battle of Bosworth 'Puritan' Shiraz

If you are looking for a Shiraz to cellar for a few years, this is probably not what you're after. However, if you are looking for a great juicy Shiraz to drink right away, you're in luck. This Shiraz has been produced without the addition of the usual preservative sulfur dioxide, hence the name puritan and has been made in a style for drinking in its youth.

Pours a very dark purple and smells of fresh berry fruit with some nice floral overtones. A very easy drinking wine, resulting from soft tannins, mild acidity and a big round palette. I definitely recommend giving this one a try, as it's unlike any other Shiraz I have tried so far. Excellent wine to take to a BBQ.
