Named after a racehorse and from a thoroughbred winery in an outstanding vintage, the 2016 Footbolt Shiraz should gallop out the door. It's just one of those great drinking, come home to kind of wines that offers plenty of happy drinking and even more bang for your buck.


Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Joseph Osborn was a successful racehorse owner and Footbolt was the pride of his stable. In 1912 he made the hard decision to sell his horses to purchase the d'Arenberg property.

This is a great value comfort red. It’s reflective of the warm 2016 vintage with plum, black fruits and liquorice. It’s quite complex for a wine at this price point with a good backbone of acidity and attractive earthy undertones. The oak is well integrated with medium level tannin, resulting in a wine that drinks well now but will also cellar for the next 5-10 years."


92/100 James Suckling (2016 Vintage)
"A cherry-flavoured nose that also offers up aromas of blackberry pie, cedar and spices. Medium to full body, grainy tannins, lots of fresh blue and black fruit and a chewy finish. Drink in 2021."


91/100 Patrick Eckel, winereviewer.com.au (2016 Vintage)
"A great value release that has revelled in the excellent vintage conditions that 2016 provided for McLaren Vale. An inky dark red in the glass with a nose that is packed with violets and plum alongside charry oak influences. 

The palate show a wine that is well and truly punching beyond its price point with concentrated and tarry black fruits accentuated by bitter dark chocolate and cedar spice. There are driving dark berry fruits with grainy tannins to finish with a good kick of acidity that underwrites plenty of future development."


90/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Mid weight at most. This is really quite slender for a warm-climate shiraz, though its bones are good and there’s just enough creaminess to the texture to give you something to latch onto. All up it’s a pretty decent package. Fumey in part but berried, smoky, flashed with salted herbs and well shaped."
