Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Footbolt shows off a brooding nose of dark red cherries, rhubarband cardamon spices, with underlying earthiness. The generous palate iswell-structured, with juicy blood plums and mulberries on the mid palate,rounded out by cinnamon spice from seasoned oak and balanced acidity tokeep the ripe fruit in check. Firm, powdery tannins provide a memorable finish.

Wine & Spirits
A solid vintage of Footbolt, d'Arenberg's bread-and-butter McLaren Vale shiraz, this draws on a deep well of red fruit and ironstone tannins--think cherries, strawberries and crushed black pepper flash-roasted in an iron skillet. This starts off cedary and ends soft and warm, focused on fruit. A versatile red for most any roast or grilled meats.

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.
