Battle Of Bosworth Chardonnay 2022
"A generous chardonnay of considerable class, belying its hot-climate origins. Riffs on nougatine, creamed cashew and canned peach. The oak is sensitively applied, evincing a nudge of authority while letting further stone and tropical fruit allusions flow. The acidity, too, an honest representation of place: soft and effortless. I'd drink this very early, but with some pleasure." - 92 Points Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)
"Lifted aromas of nougat, white peach, sweet florals, grilled nuts and citrus. Full flavoured, rich and mouth-filling, quite plush, ripe stone fruit, nutty oak and soft, shapely acidity. Generously flavoured, easy drinking and delivers." - 90 Points Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)

Situated in the foothills of the Southern Mount Lofty Ranges and bound to the west by the pristine waters of the Gulf St Vincent, Battle of Bosworth is in the heart of the McLaren Vale wine region.
Located in Willunga, to the south of the McLaren Vale township, Edgehill Vineyard was established in the early 1970s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth. Willunga itself was settled in approximately 1837 and Bosworths have been growing grapes in the district on and off from the late 1850s. Son Joch Bosworth took over the management and day to day running of the vineyards in 1995, and set about converting the vineyards to certified organic viticulture from this time.
Battle of Bosworth Wines was established in 2001 by Joch Bosworth and partner Louise Hemsley-Smith and wines are made from vines that were planted in the early 1970’s by Joch’s parents.
