The Spring Seed Scarlet Runner Shiraz is a lovely fresh bright Shiraz, true to region and variety. There are bright red and some dark fruits on the nose, a hint of chocolate and a mere whiff of oak.

The tannins in the mouth are smooth and overall the wine is fresh, juicy and quite delicious. Try it with a Tuscan pepper stew or Peposo and if you have enough Scarlet Runner, you could use it to make the dish, too!

There is no real eureka moment when making wine – half the time it is finding the right way and then just repeating year in and year out, which kind of takes out a little of the romance of winemaking, but if it works… So, each year Joch picks the Shiraz on flavour and sugar ripeness.

Spring Seed Scarlet Runner Shiraz grapes are crushed and then fermented in open vessels before being transferred to barrel, in some case to finish ferment and other batches will go into stainless steel. Scarlet Runner is designed to be a fresh style of Shiraz without too much oak influence, so we don’t go mad with oak. We do use a couple of new barrels, but for the most part we use old oak and stainless steel. We bottle the Shiraz roughly 12 months after we picked the grapes.

The vineyard was established in the early 1970’s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth, and is now owned and run by their son Joch, 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.

The Spring Seed Wine labels are unashamedly inspired by vintage flower seed packets created at the turn of the last century. The colour, clarity and beauty of the original seed packets are quite remarkable. We chose three different flower images to adorn each one of our McLaren Vale wines, simply because they are quite lovely. The Aster Pinot Noir has the Aster (Callistephus chinensis), Foxglove (Digitalis pupurea) and Hollyhocks (Alcea rosea) labels.

Joch Bosworth also makes Battle of Bosworth wines using grapes from their organically grown and certified vineyards.
