The red wine
In 1912, horse fanatic Joseph Osborn sold his stables and horses and bought the family the d'Arenberg estate in premium McLaren Vale. One of the horses sold was the great 'Thunderstep', a powerful racer and father to Footbolt! Joseph chose McLaren Vale as it has some of Australia's oldest vineyards, and with an array of soils and the cooling effect of the nearby ocean, it's ideal for vines. Winemaker today is sixth-generation Chester Osborn. He continues the family tradition of treading the grapes by foot part way through fermentation. It certainly ensures plenty of dark colour, character and richness in the wines. You'll always spot a d'Arenberg wine with its bold red stripe on the label. A great Shiraz to enjoy with hearty dishes.
