d’Arenberg Footbolt Shiraz
This is a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz, rich, ripe red berry fruits and great fruit length. 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!

Farmers Leap Shiraz
On the palate the wine is full and rich with fresh lively dark fruit characters and savoury spice, yet has soft and silky tannins and a lingering finish.
Sourced from two sites in close proximity; one with red clay over limestone providing richness and intensity, the other at the base of the hillside on a sandy loam soil also over limestone-which provides freshness and elegance to the wine.
The fruit was fermented on skins for eight days before being pressed and transferred to barrel for 15 months maturation. A mix of 80% French and 20% American oak was used.
