The Footbolt Shiraz

The Footbolt Shiraz

The Footbolt Shiraz by d’Arenberg named after the decision in 1912 by Joseph Osborn, who was a successful racehorse owner and Footbolt was the pride of his stable, to sell his horses to purchase the d’Arenberg property.

McLaren Vale through and through! Here is the epitome of great Shiraz from our world renowned region. This is a wine that seduces. The nose is loaded with black pepper and baking spices. Liquorice and aniseed aromas are lifted by bucketloads of red and black plummy berry fruit. It’s not just fruit and spice on the nose here though. This is a complex wine showing fresh mushroom and forest floor characters with subtle hints of aged oak and scented glimpses of seasoned leather and pipe tobacco. The seduction continues on the palate with a foreboding rush of dark fruit, blood orange, charcuterie, and peaty earth. All wrapped around a robust concentrated core of chewy, round tannin. This vibrant tannin line carries through to a long, spicy, mineral finish.

The Footbolt Shiraz is a wine any lover of Shiraz will happily be seduced by.

Opportunist Shiraz

The Opportunist Shiraz

The Opportunist Shiraz by One Chain Vineyards

The wine has an aromatic bouquet of ripe fruits, cherries and blackcurrants, with notes of freshly ground coffee, dark chocolate, peppermint, liquorice and subtle pepper. Thick and smooth with good balanced fruit weight.

An energetic, vibrant nose of delicious, herbal cassis and spice followed by a succulent palate of dark fruits, mocha and grilled meats. Lovely balance, intense yet not over-powering.

Fruit for the Opportunist Shiraz comes from 3 separate blocks of the same vineyard in the historic Langhorne Creek region. All blocks are trellised and spur pruned though the trellis height vary dependent on frost risk. Soils are a mix of sandy loam and darker red soils with moderate fertility. Yields are low to moderate with good canopies that allow for a lengthy ripening period.

As for all of our wines, the fruit for the Opportunist is picked on the way up to ripeness rather than on the way down. This way we achieve freshness and energy but not at the expense of flavour. We retain as many whole berries as possible to increase vibrancy and succulence. Winemaking is simple and is followed by 8 months on oak to increase texture and varietal expression. rate fertility. Yields are low to moderate with good canopies that allow for a lengthy ripening period.

Good with beef stews, entrecôte or a crispy Thai beef salad.
