Cabernet Sauvignon is called the king of grapes and at Zonte’s Footstep it is so revered. Arthurian Legend had it that whoever could pull Excalibur from the stone ruled under the Avalon Tree would be king. Our Avalon Tree is a top picnic stock; we even have a round table!

This wine hangs about after you have tasted it for so long it seems almost self defeating, although the tannins call for another sip whilst it’s still in the mouth.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for Avalon Tree comes from one block in the heart of the Langhorne Creek and another in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of the McLaren Vale.
Production Notes
Primary fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to new & well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to 12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration. This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is regal and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
Winemaker Notes
