Named after a racehorse and from a thoroughbred winery, the 2018 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. 2018 was a very good 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 (2018 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 lifted, aromatic nose with luscious plum and red berry aromas. The palate is soft and cuddly and concludes with some firm tannin and acidity. There’s flavours of mulberry, pomegranate, dried herbs and earth, with a finish that is a little wild and rustic."


90/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, December 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"This is a good one. The flavour profile is all about sweet fruit and it presents as relatively simple but it has freshness and shape and excellent all-round drinkability.  There’s a slight herbal note to the palate; a good thing, wrapped as it is in plum and cream. It’s ready to drink now but it should go all right over the medium term as well."

93/100 Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
“Blackberry and blueberry with graphite aromas follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a polished finish. Compact and fine-grained.”

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
