Before being renamed The Footbolt Shiraz in 1996, the Old Vine Shiraz (as it was then known) was the first wine to use the term ‘Old Vine’. Always reliably good , Footbolt will always please the serious red drinker.
Winemaker Notes

Nose:
Full of the fresh berries and spice synonymous with McLaren Vale, with a slight eucalypt lift. There is real interest in the secondary characters of sarsaparilla, cinnamon and clove which are expressed more completely as the wine opens up.

Palate:
Mouth coating and plush with red and purple fruits mingling with orange peel and earth. There is a welcomed kick of five spice on the back palate. The lifted and fine fruit tannins provide structure and pull the wine together nicely.
