The Footbolt: one of the staples of the d’Arenberg stable as part of ‘The Originals.’
d’Arenberg, The Footbolt, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2017
Inky bruise purple with a familiar and comforting nose of fleshy plums, choc-nut bar, soft licorice and deep McLaren Vale raspberry with oak derived cedar and vanilla. The Footbolt nails it yet again with rose petal florals supporting the mineral edged choc/plum body. Gravelly tannins and a savoury licorice finish. Simplicity.
