Powerhouse Reds Battle of Bosworth Syrah Shiraz Alexander Valley 2004
Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemsley-Smith are two very well known grape growers in the legendary McLaren Vale in Australia. Combine their ability to grow spectacular wine grapes (in this case, Shiraz) with winemaker Benn Riggs' (the 2005 Australian Winemaker of the Year - a very impressive achievement) ability to nurture the juice into an orgy of sensual pleasure that pairs with impetuous food pairings. Of course, Mickey Rourke may have a few suggestions. Oh, and if you're fond of organic wines - this happens to be one of those too.
