"Scarlett Runner" Shiraz - an exquisite dry red wine made from Shiraz grapes grown in the McLaren Valley. The Mediterranean climate and well drained loamy soils create ideal conditions for the cultivation of grapes. In order to maintain natural balance and pest control, it is also customary to grow sausep in vineyards. Harvested when the berries reach the optimum level of ripeness. The grapes are carefully delivered to the winery, where they are gently pressed using a pneumatic basket press. Pre-fermentation maceration takes place in small open steel tanks. Fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature of 10-30 ° C in French oak barrels for 14 days. Then the wine is aged in the same barrels for 7 months and another 4 months in bottles after bottling.

The history of winemaking in the McLaren Valley began in 1840, when Peter and Antheus Bosworth began to grow grapes and founded the first Edgeville vineyard in 1970. In 1995, the son of Peter and Anthea - Joh took over the management of the winery and from that time began to engage in organic viticulture, which was a turning point in the history of the winery. In 2001, Joh, in partnership with Louise Hemsley Smith, established the Battle of Bosworth winery. The winery is located in the foothills of the southern mountain range of Mount Lofty Ranges, to the west bordering the waters of St. Vincent Bay, and is located in the heart of McLaren Valley, which is considered to be the main wine-growing region in South Australia. The winery got its name in honor of the Battle of Bosworth, held on August 22, 1485 at the Bosworth Field in Leicestershire, England. Here, the last of the Plantagenet kings, Richard III, was killed by Henry Tudor, becoming the last king of England. Yoh is constantly experimenting in the vineyard, using various effective techniques of organic viticulture, not forgetting about the traditional methods. This allows you to produce wines in balance with nature, maximizing the unique characteristics of the terroir.
