About

"Smooth and round, wrapped in a layer of fine tannins. The exotic flavors of cherry, guava, goji berry and tropical spices billow easily on the long finish. Best from 2014 through 2020. 100 cases imported." (05/12)

Product Description:

Wine:
"Barossa blood red - i.e. deep crimson with a purple hue. On the nose, super blackberries and pure unadulterated 99% Cocoa chocolate. Lifted blood plum and raspberries and some dark pepper and brambly spice smells. On the palate there are generous black fruits, like mulberries and boysenberries, a full and frank Shiraz start. Classic Barossa; generous, flavoursome and super sweet blackberry pie with dark, dry chocolate mouth feel. Sweet fruit then tightens up with fine fruit and oak tannin. Great flavour and composition. Sweet spice cuts through plus hints of jamminess. On the finish there is youthful austerity as you would expect from such a classic old school Shiraz, but there is also plenty of fineness to the tannin and dark chocolate nuances in the lengthy finish." - Winery

Producer:
"Zonte's Footstep is named after a 19th century Zante currant vineyard, as new plantings follow the original footstep. The currant business dried up, but Zonte's Footstep became our blueprint..."

"In 2003 we pooled old white utes and new-ish tractors to grow the best grapes from the best vineyards. All we want to do is taste our fruit in our wine, so we charged our reigning winemaker, Mr. Ben Riggs, with one goal; to make the best wines we can, true to vineyard and variety, so long as we make a bloody good drink!" - Winery

This was also scored 89 Points by the Australian Wine Companion, and 85 Points in the Wine Advocate.
