Battle of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz 2020
Vibrant colour (this is a very young wine) it is purple and luminescent almost. Red and black fruit characters explode on the nose. Puritan has a long, flowing and soft palate. Drink now at room temperature, or chill for 30 minutes on a hot day.
Puritan is a very simple wine to make as there are very few ingredients - just grapes, really. They pick the Shiraz grapes when they are nice and ripe (sugar ripe and flavour ripe, not always the same thing), crush the grapes and then ferment them in small open fermenters, then transfer the wine to stainless steel tanks (no need for oak barrels as Puritan is completely unoaked.) Once the wine has gone through secondary fermentation (malolactic fermentation) they bottle it immediately. Puritan their interpretation of a youthful Spanish ‘Joven’ style wine, only made with Shiraz.
