As UK writer Matthew Jukes says, “Zonte’s Footstep wines are not ‘old world’, nor even ‘new world’, Zonte’s is out of this world!” Taste this dazzling Gold-medal dozen and you’ll agree! Zonte’s Footstep wines are hugely popular with both wine drinkers, critics and show judges alike (have you ever seen SO much Gold in one case?) and once you’ve tasted one of their wines, you soon see why. Enjoy two super crisp whites, a charming Rosé and three fabulously indulgent reds – all of them shimmering with GOLD.
Zonte's Footstep ‘shining sword rising from the water’ moment wasn’t quite of Arthurian legend, but by a misty dam early one morning. The first rapier-like cut of this Sauvignon Blanc inspired their Excalibur. Perfect for sitting down with a well-chilled glass on a balmy summer’s eve, accompanying a plate of any fresh crustacean known to man. Excalibur will surely impress with its white grapefruit zest, lemon curd notes and delicate citrus blossom aromas, with tart gooseberry and mineral-like acidity. It is the perfect accomplice to just such occasions.
The winery named this rosé in honour of all the Scarlet Ladybirds in their vineyard that eat other tiny, pests like aphids. A deliciously refreshing food-friendly pink to enjoy any time of the day. Comprised of Grenache, Cabernet and Shiraz, this perky pink is scarlet red in colour with darker cherry notes, milk chocolate and Summer berries rounded out by a textural, mouthfilling finish. Great served with fresh prawns, spicy pork larb or Greek lamb
The fruit for Blackberry Patch comes from one block in the heart of the Langhorne Creek and another in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale. Plush and silky cassis-rich Cabernet Sauvignon (95%) with a dash of red-berry Tempranillo (5%) – this is juicy, mouthfilling stuff. As the folk at Zonte’s Footstep like to say, they take their vineyards and their wines seriously, but not themselves. As per usual for Zonte’s Footstep, it’s a multi-medal winner too. “"Delectably styled and composed, the wine shows dark fruit richness together with smoked game, almond and fragrant spice notes on the nose. It's plump and succulent, offering fabulous fruit power, well supported by silky texture and fine tannins with a prolonged delicious finish... 94pts” (Sam Kim, Wine Orbit).
Gloriously succulent McLaren Vale Grenache from the bestselling Zonte's Footstep folk ... we love love love this wine! (And we think you will too). Glittering with plum and red berry fruit, a lovely splash of exotic spice, deliciously soft and smooth tannins ... this is like being given a big, comforting hug from someone you love. Beautiful stuff!
Just what the Doctor ordered: The Zonte’s Footstep Lake Doctor Vineyard is situated on the shores of Lake Alexandrina in Langhorne Creek. Each summer afternoon, the house-cooling breeze of the ‘Lake Doctor’ arrives and revives vines and vignerons alike. Langhorne Creek Shiraz excellence: This red is not just about the fruit. It’s earthy too. Think juicy plum pudding and five spice flavours with a lick of cedary oak. What we have always loved about Langhorne Creek is they produce cracker wines – consistently! Dinosaur inspiration... While replanting the vineyard in 1999, some HUGE footprints were discovered, from the largest known marsupial to have ever lived - the Diprotodon. Hence, the ‘Footstep’ part of their name!
Zonte's call this a "sexy, sassy, somewhat racy Vermentino that exudes so much character it just keeps you coming back for more..." With a tinge of pineapple skin on the nose. A rush of grapefruit, blanched almond and array of citrus on the entry. What follows is refreshing, tart peach and lime curd with a subtle minerality. The finish follows suit with pink grapefruit and stone fruit with a persistent zesty citrus and wet slate finish. Flavoursome and fine, with a crunchy texture and cleansing acidity to boot! Lady Marmalade Vermentino is an exciting, fresh, food-friendly white wine.
