dArenberg Footbolt Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Joseph Rowe Osborn was born in 1852, he was a lay preacher, mining speculator, public servant, teetotaler and local politician. Osborn joined Thomas Hardy & Sons in 1881, eventually becoming a partner and director. He invested in a chestnut colt which won a fortune at the races and changed his life forever. Footbolt was the first wine in McLaren Vale to be labelled as Old Vine. When the moniker became common practice it was altered to commemorate the racehorse which played a pivotal role in the establishment of d'Arenberg.

Joseph Osborn purchased the nascent McLaren Vale Milton Vineyards in 1912. Components of today's Footbolt Shiraz are still sourced off the original vines acquired by Osborn a century ago. Small batches are passed through a gentle open roller crusher, some berries remain whole, followed by transfer to five tonnes headed down open fermenters. When tannin extraction is just right, the wine is basket pressed and filled to a mixture of new and older American and French oak barriques and large casks for completion of ferments and malolactic. Barrels are aged for a year on lees to keep the wine fresh and reduce influence of oak, remaining unracked until the final assemblage, unfiltered and unfined.
Deep bright scarlet colour. Enticing mix of red and black fruits, mulberries and ripe blackberry, exotic spice supports the fruit, nutmeg and cinnamon, anise and clove, it wouldn’t be Footbolt without that generous lick of d’Arenberg earth and game. On the palate the wine is rich, concentrated and generous, an intrinsic warmth, the dark plummy fruit, leather and cedar notes, soily tannins with a hint of chewiness, pulls it all together for a long, gratifying finish.
