Review: d’Arenberg – The Footbolt Shiraz (2012)

The Footbolt from d'Arenberg

The Wine Review:

Bought this in anticipation of this year’s d’Arenberg release and thought it might be good to refresh the baseline entry level shiraz. Blackcurrant, a fruity aroma Dark fruit (black currant) with some savoury elements. Fairly smooth tannins with slight chew on the end. Oak and spice but fruit dominant. Jamminess.

Solid and dependable with an everyman charm. The Matt Damon of $15 Shiraz
