Wine d'Arenberg The Footbolt, Shiraz, 2008
Reviews of purchase d'Arenberg The Footbolt, Shiraz, 2008
Wine deep magenta color.
Initially, mature and mellow taste of wine varietal revealed shades of red and purple fruits - raspberries, blueberries and plums, gradually making room for the added complexity of the nuances of mocha, graphite and roasted meat. The last layer is marked spicy notes of cinnamon and fresh fine-grained tannins.
Pleasant aroma of wine abounds floral tones - violets, lavender and rose water in harmony with shades of purple fruits and charming nuances of cedar and spice.
The wine goes well with braised or grilled meats, pasta, spicy dishes and hard cheeses.
Wine "The Footbolt 2008" maintained for 12 months in new and old barrels of French and American oak. Wine storage capacity is at least 10 years.
The story of one of the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale began in 1912 when Joseph Osborn purchased 25 hectares of vineyards in the hills north of Bellevue. Son of Joseph - Francis - increased area of vineyards to 78 hectares, and before completion in 1928 winery, harvest sold to local winemakers, and later established his own production of dry red and fortified wines.
His son Francis d'Arenberg Osborne, known as d'Arrest, 16 years after leaving school in 1943, had joined his father, and in 1957 completely took over the management of a winery. In 1959, he launches under its own brand "d'Arenberg", named after his mother - Frances Helena d'Arenberg. Wine immediately received cult status from connoisseurs, critics and judges. In 2004, Francis d'Arenberg Osborn was awarded the Order of Australia for his contribution to the wine industry in the region McLaren Vale. Francis is very proud of its achievements in the creation of internationally recognized wines, commonly known as "red band" due to the distinctive diagonal red stripe that adorns the labels of wines "d'Arenberg".
The representative of the fourth generation, Chester d'Arenberg, after graduating from college Rouzvort and gain practical experience in a number of Australian and European wine regions, took the reins "d'Arenberg" as chief winemaker in 1984. He immediately began to return to the traditional practice of family vineyards growing grapes: at minimum cost and without artificial pollination, irrigation to the extent possible, with very low yields. Winemaking processes of the past have been preserved, unique wines are made in small batches and perfectly convey the nature of class and a true taste of the region McLaren Vale.
