Label for D'Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz 2010, McLaren Vale

Product Details

Tasting Notes

The nose is full of the typical Mclaren Vale red berries and spice.

As the wine opens up secondary characters of cinnamon and clove begin to express themselves.

Five spice can be detected at the back palate, fine tannins ensure the length lasts and lasts.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 7 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Medium purple-crimson; a mouthfilling, medium- to full-bodied shiraz, flooded with roughly equal amounts of blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate oak and tannins; the balance is good, as is the outlook for the wine. Neither fined nor filtered. Drink by 2020 94 Points

Regional info

McLaren Vale wines are distinguished by their ripeness and elegance. It excels at producing Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The soils of McLaren Vale vary greatly and are very randomly distributed because the area is made up of glacial deposits, beach sand and limestone. Vines are planted on a wide variety of soils including podsolic soils of low fertility, fertile red-brown earths, terra rossa, rendzina, soldolic and dark cracking soils. McLaren Vale's climate is of the Mediterranean type: warm dry summers and cool wet winters, with low relative humidity and relatively high evaporation. In McLaren Vale, the risk of rainfall or frost during the harvest period is rare and this is one of the reasons why the region is such a marvellously predictable place to grow grapes and make premium wines.
