Battle of Bosworth Organic ‘Puritan’ Shiraz 2017

Organic, no added preservatives and no oak – the Puritan!

“I used to call our Puritan a ‘Joven’ style red, a term which refers to young fresh red wines that come out of Rioja in Spain, which are made from Tempranillo.  I think I might change now to what Tony Love, wine correspondent from the Adelaide Advertiser called in in a review of the 2017 Puritan in the Source ( on Wednesday 18th October 2017).  He called the Puritan (and other similar types which he also reviewed) as ‘bright young things’. This description captures perfectly what the Puritan is all about. Shiraz is picked ripe and crushed then fermented in stainless steel vessels (no oak barrels are used in the making of this wine). Once through the sugar-to-alcohol fermentation, the wine goes ‘through malo’ (a secondary fermentation which changes malic acid to softer lactic acid) and then we bottle it. Bright, young, fresh, juicy and quite delicious.”
Joch Bosworth, Winemaker (or as we call him, Bozzy)

“An absolute ripper…”

“An absolute ripper from Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemlsey-Smith in McLaren Vale – a “new wave” red that is all about pure fruit flavours. Made in the “Joven” or “young wine” style of Rioja, this is one of the first 2017 reds to cross my path. Made organically with no oak treatment and no added preservatives, it is designed for early enjoyment and that certainly works. Bright and fresh with dark berry and red fruit characters jostling for supremacy, this is a red that demands very little but delivers a whole lot.  Soft and subversively slurpable.”
