d'Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz 2017
|Region||Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale|
"Blackberry and blueberry with graphite aromas follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a polished finish. Compact and fine-grained. Drink now. Screw cap."
Not one of d'Arenberg's most characterful wines, this is nevertheless true to variety, region and winery style. Ripe brambly fruit mingles with peppery spice, all buoyed by crunchy acidy and held in place with a firm grip of leathery tannins.
Juicy, featuring bright cherry and framboise flavors at the core, accented by blood orange and strawberry notes, with details of green tea and spice on the dense finish. Drink now. 4,200 cases imported.
