Battle of Bosworth Pinot Noir 2011
Lovely bright colour, the nose is varietal with some stewed prunes, compote and strawberries. The palate strikes me as a light Shiraz or Syrah. Although the Pinot characteristics are there, the density for this variety (perhaps the concentration) of the fruit draw me to this conclusion. That said, it is still light to medium bodied. Good fruit, well balanced, and good length all coming from this organically certified winery.
Worth a look for its point of being a Pinot Noir from McLaren Vale.
