Price hasn’t changed from the 2013 release. New and used French and American oak for 18 months.
d’Arenberg, The Footbolt Shiraz, McLaren Vale 2014
Good smells: heady and lovely mineral tang to warm plum slices, dried herbs, violets, fennel bulb and a rich oak signature. Densely darkly fruited palate with a good bluestone, tarry grip and lingering plums and violets . Cruises along in 4th gear with ease finishing with firm, flinty tannins. Plenty to like and too easy to share the bottle with a big charry plate of lamb forequarter chops.
