Named after a racehorse and from a thoroughbred winery, the 2017 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. 2017 was an excellent vintage in the McLaren Vale.

A consistently great McLaren Vale Shiraz. Generously rich with amazing fruit weight and balanced, chewy tanins. Brimming with ripe red fruits and an underlying layer of subtle oak, as well as a hint of pepper. This wine represents great value, and has a long life ahead of it… If you can resist!
Dan Murphy’s in Australia said…“A welcome back from the wilderness for this great label! This is the best looking Footbolt in some years…”


Winery notes (2017 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.

A consistently great McLaren Vale Shiraz. Generously rich with amazing fruit weight and balanced, chewy tanins. Brimming with ripe red fruits and an underlying layer of subtle oak, as well as a hint of pepper. This wine represents great value, and has a long life ahead of it… If you can resist!"


89/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, April 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Intensity of flavour is good, as is associated volume. It delivers of mouthful of blackberry, plum and red licorice flavour. The finish is chewy and a little stumbly but with such momentum through the palate it’s fair to judge that the wine gets away with it. It offers good value and drinking."


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


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."
