Winemaker Notes

Joseph Rowe Osborn was one of the most successful racehorse owners in South Australia in the early 1900s. When his colt, a chestnut named "Footbolt," delivered a winning streak of six races, Joseph was able to purchase the first of the d'Arenberg vineyards and establish what are now the oldest vineyards in McLaren Vale. It is fitting, therefore, that this wine bears the great racing horse's name.

The 2005 Footbolt Shiraz exhibits aromas of satsuma plums, cherries and cranberries with dried floral herbs, spice and dark chocolate. The expressive palate delivers luscious red fruit, plums and blueberries with licorice and spice among cedar oak and savory tannins.

This wine is approachable now and will gain considerable complexity with age.

d'Arenberg, , Australia
One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.
