bold & opulent

‘Bright purple. Impressively perfumed aromas of powerful dark berries and musky herbs. Fresh, spicy, blackberry and cassis flavors are enlivened by tangy minerals and sweetened by a suggestion of floral pastille. The wine takes a slightly bitter turn on the chewy finish, leaving an impression of liquorice. Serve this with something smoky.‘(Steven Tanzer's July 2007) The young Footbolt Shiraz has a deep red-purple, then the immediate hallmarks of spicy, lifted, ripe peppery mulberry and blackberry fruit aromas. Richer chocolate, stewed plum mint and spicy, cedary pepper, smells and often a note of cinnamon follow the initial attack of primary fruit characters. d’Arenberg’s The Footbolt Shiraz palate is consistently well structured with terrific fruit and totally integrated oak tannin providing great texture to support plum, blackcurrant and rolling blackberry flavours, especially on the mid-palate. Often dark chocolate characters are quite evident too. This is followed by a traditional, long, velvety, fine grained tannin finish. The Footbolt Shiraz will gain complexity with age, as with all d’Arenberg red wines. The aromas slowly incorporate developed cedar, coffee and developed dark chocolate smells with leather, tobacco and earthy aromas whilst always maintaining great fruit characters from spicy through to the very ripe, depending on the vintage. More often than not, distinctive peppery-spicy characters come to the fore after a little time in bottle. On the tongue, the Footbolt Shiraz maintains a wonderfully textured palate with significant bottle age. Gentle, grainy black olive flavours balance the sweeter coffee, chocolate and occasional mint characters. The hallmarks of McLaren Vale, d'Arenberg and The Footbolt Shiraz, a soft, rich middle palate, terrific texture and a long rolling finish, can reside with this wine for a number of years, even decades, as more than four decades of previous vintages have shown.
