Winemaker Notes

Aromas of dark red fruits, black olive and beef stock open into notes of blueberries and licorice with a savory dried herb edge. The palate shows great balance with blueberry and mulberry fruits, spices and a hint of white pepper on the finish. As always The Footbolt is a very approachable wine in its youth but has the capacity to age for many years.

Critical Acclaim

JH 94
Australian Wine Companion

Full-bodied, strongly regional style, but without excess alcohol or any dead fruit; attractive mix of blackberry, dark chocolate and a touch of spicy/toasty oak; ripe tannins.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Inky ruby. Powerfully scented aromas of high-pitched red berries, cherry and minerals. Deep black raspberry and candied blueberry flavors coat the palate and are given support by fine-grained tannins. Finishes silky, sweet and long, with very good clarity and cut.

Lastly, the 2006 The Footbolt Shiraz (which contains a bit of Grenache) offers fragrant aromas of wood smoke, game, and blueberry. Layered and balanced, it will evolve for several years and drink well through 2017. The d’Arenberg portfolio is loaded with values. The winery works with over 140 growers to fashion their superb blends. 90+
