Spring Seed 'Cockscomb' Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
The Cockscomb is made in a very similar fashion to the Bosworth Cabernet Sauvignon – pretty traditional in every way. The grapes are harvested and then crushed and fermented in various open vessels. The juice is pumped over the ‘cap’ (the mass of skins which floats to the top during a ferment) to extract colour, flavour and tannin. We use both French and American oak to mature the wine in, but Cockscomb spends considerably less time in oak, and we use less new oak, too as compared to the Battle of Bosworth CS. Spring Seed Wines
On the 2018 Vintage : At the risk of having tickets on ourselves, we really do make lovely Cabernet here at Battle of Bosworth and Spring Seed Wines 😊 we have old organic vineyards whose vines are now perfectly in balance and we’ve been doing all of this for a while; we’ve got form! The result is a lovely varietal Cabernet, with a fresh palate (showing red and black fruits) with a lovely long, persistent finish. Just lovely. Old school roast lamb? Or lamb chops on the BBQ.

Spring Seed Wines are made from grapes lovingly grown in the Bosworth family’s organic vineyards, located in the premium wine region of McLaren Vale, South Australia.
The labels are unashamedly inspired by vintage flower seed packets created at the turn of the century. The colour, clarity and beauty of the original seed packets are quite remarkable.
The vineyards were established in the early 1970s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth, and are now owned and run by their son Joch (and partner Louise Hemsley-Smith), who began the conversion to organic viticulture in 1995.
The vines are fully certified ‘A’ grade organic by Australian Certified Organic, a process that takes four years and involves yearly audits and random sampling of produce. Joch Bosworth also makes Battle of Bosworth wines using grapes from our organically grown and certified vineyards.
