The Footbolt 2009 - MCLaren Vale, Shiraz

L'avis du sommelier

This Australian wine is a superb discovery that I couldn’t wait to make you taste. The syrah is the most popular red grape variety in Australia. It is perfectly made by one of the most famous oenologist of the country. This well structured wine can be tasted from now, or you can lay it down for 5 years.

The terroir

The McLaren Vale is situated 25 miles south of Adelaide, capital city of the state of South Australia. The vineyards benefit from the Mediterranean-like climate conditions and the proximity to the coast assures warm winters. Water goes through the vine roots and influences the wine aromas. 

lecepage The grape variety

Syrah, also called Shiraz in Australia, is the most popular grape variety of the McLaren Vale. Australia is also the second producer of Shiraz after France. However, the Australian shiraz, grows in a warmer climate with much higher temperatures resulting in a wine with very ripe fruit and lower acidity.

lemillesime The vintage

In 2009, sufficient winter rains set up the grape vines well. At the beginning of the Australian summer (December and most of January) the temperatures were below average. The mild weather that followed ensured stress free ripening was and grapes showed good levels of natural acidity and balanced tannins.

lerecoltant The winemaker

The winery d’Aremberg was founded in 1912 by Joseph Osborn. Funny fact: the wine has the name of his favourite horse, Footbolt. After four generations, Chester Osborn is now the director of what became one of the most reputable winery in Australia. Indeed, in 2009, the Wine and Spirits Magazine (USA) elected Aremberg the winery of the year.
