"Malbec from Australia may not be on anyone's radar, but if this beauty from Zonte's Footstep is an indicator of potential, then Argentina could be challenged in its dominance of this growing red-wine category. The Zonte's Footstep is ultra-suave, showing ripe red-fruit aromas on the nose and supple smoothness on the palate. This wine took platinum at the recent Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition." 1/28/14
James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion:
Strong purple-crimson; the growing season was, of course, very good, but it seems to have been particularly favourable for Langhorne Creek malbec; here the juicy/jam plum fruit also has more structure than most of its peers.
"Broad, bright and open-textured, with plush currant and blueberry fruit, shaded with hints of mint and spice. Lingers well. Drink now through 2019. 1,200 cases made." Reviewed 08/2015
