    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 vineyardsin 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 driedfloral herbs, spice and dark chocolate. The expressive palate delivers luscious red fruit, plums andblueberries with licorice and spice among cedar oak and savory tannins.

    This wine is approachablenow and will gain considerable complexity with age.

    d'Arenberg, Australia
    d'Arenberg Adelaide Hills Winery Image

    d'Arenberg is one of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and other Rhone varieties that have historically defined the region. A century on, their vineyards have grown to some 450 acres in McLaren Vale, including Shiraz dating back to d'Arenberg's first plantings in 1912, and nearly one-third of McLaren Vale's old bush-vine Grenache. Fourth generation winemaker, Chester Osborn, recently converted all of the family's vineyards to organics and biodynamics and moved to solar energy in the winery. All the while, in terms of winemaking, not much has changed--all the wines are basket-pressed, the reds foot-trodden during fermentation; everything is done in small batches, leading to an impressive array of bottlings every year, each showing a different facet of McLaren Vale terroir. Having been inducted into Wine & Spirits Magazine's Hall of Fame for earning a place on its Top 100 Wineries nine times, this accolade is a reflection of d'Arenberg's revered reputation worldwide.
