  • Joseph Rowe Osborn, the founder of d'Arenberg, first became involved in the wine industry when he joined the prospering Thomas Hardy and Sons in 1881, eventually becoming a partner and director. A colourful character and enthusiastic patron of the turf, he secured a well-bred chestnut colt named "Footbolt" whose winning streak of six races assisted Joseph in funding the purchase of d'Arenberg's first vineyards in 1912. The Oldest of the d'Arenberg blocks were planted in the 1880s with Shiraz, and still contribute to our wines to this day. As with all d'Arenberg premium reds, open fermenters (where the traditional foot treading in wader-clad feet takes place) and basket presses were used to ensure maximum development of colour and flavour. Our natural minimum processing practises (no fining or filtration) ensures maximum flavour, and may result in a harmless deposit in and adhering to the bottle. This wine will benefit from extended bottle ageing and decanting.
