Joseph Rowe Osborn, a South Australian racehorse owner of the early 1900s, happened
upon a chestnut colt named "Footbolt" who delivered a winning streak of six races early
in his career. From the winnings, Joseph was able to purchase the first of the d'Arenberg
vineyards, and establish what are now the oldest vineyards in McLaren Vale.
Aromas of dark red fruits, black olive and beef stock open into notes of blueberries and
liquorice with a savoury dried herb edge. The palate shows great balance with blueberry
and mulberry fruits, spices and a hint of white pepper on the finish. As always The
Footbolt is a very approachable wine in its youth but has the capacity to age for many years.
"This is a lovely Shiraz at a great price. It delivers blueberry and espresso on the nose, then expands on those themes in the mouth, providing a pleasant interplay of sweet and savory. It's creamy in texture without being soft, and finishes with commendable length."
"The 2007 The Footbolt Shiraz which spent 20 months in French and American oak offers fragrant aromas of wood smoke, game, and blueberry. Layered and balanced, it will evolve for several years and drink well through 2019."
The Wine Advocate
"Deep ruby. Pungent aromas of dark berry preserves, licorice and potpourri. Sweet, borderline-jammy black and blue fruit flavors provide very good palate coverage and are firmed by supple tannins. Finishes sweet, strong and persistent; this is already drinking well."

In McLaren Vale, there are vines as far as the eye can see. As in other parts of...Read More About McLaren Vale
