Certified Organic, the Battle of Bosworth Chardonnay is complex & delicious, full of flavour, yet delicate.
There is a hint of nut, stone fruit & some underlying citrus characters on both nose & palate.
Medium-bodied, full flavoured & quite delightful.
"Golden colour introduces a flint-flecked wine with strong flavours of ripe peach & toasty oak. This is full-bodied chardonnay with plenty of zing to the finish..." - James Halliday

"Very succulent apricot fruit rounded out with toffee & caramel as well as a lot of floral character. Just the right balance of viscosity, acidity & fruit concentration. Excellent stuff!" - Jancis Robinson
"Smoky, bacony oak adds a clear edge to strong, characterful fruit. If an elegant wine can also be a force to be reckoned with, then this is it." - James Halliday

"This is very good release for Cape Mentelle. You rarely go too far wrong with their Chardonnay, but this vintage is a long way right." - The Wine Front
"... aromas of peach, nutmeal, matchstick & creamy vanilla oak are backed by nuances of smoked meats & nutty, yeast-derived notes. It’s long & smooth, with a fractionally brassy & candied presence of citrusy, melon & stonefruit flavours backed by nutty, mealy aspects & sweet oak, finishing with genuine length & a brittle acidity. It opens up considerably with aeration." - Jeremy Oliver
