Battle of Bosworth is one of Autralia's most exciting producers and this classic Cabernet Sauvignon offers rich red and black fruits on the nose which carry through to the palate with a surprising freshness which verges on mint. Medium-bodied, the oak is nicely integrated and the result is a super wine from a splendid vintage with fine tannins and a finish of great length. It will drink very nicely now but will also age and develop well, and decanting before drinking is advised to fully appreciate the aromas.
