If it looks like a blueberry, smells like a blueberry and tastes like a blueberry pie then VIOLET BEAUREGARD you are. Best drunk without Veruca Salt or Augustus Gloop. On the vine our perfectly round, plump and violet-purple Zonte’s Footsteps Malbec looks like blueberries, when you crush, ferment and pour then into a glass it smells like blueberries, and in the mouth our Malbec tastes like blueberry pie. Don’t say we didn’t warn you Violet Beauregard!

Vineyard Notes
Violet Beauregard’s vineyard is on a 40 million year old alluvial plain, nestled between two rivers adjacent to Lake Alexandrina, upstream from the River Murray’s sea mouth. It is an oasis in a cool desert with vines planted on their own roots, in maritime red sands that sit over pre-Cambrian Limestone and ideal for growing grapes.
Production Notes
This is the ninth consecutive vintage of Zonte’s Footstep wine with Malbec in it, but the first to be released as a 100% Malbec.

Other Notes
On the vine our perfectly round, plump and violet-purple Zonte’s Footsteps Malbec looks like blueberries, when you crush, ferment and pour then into a glass it smells like blueberries, and in the mouth our Malbec tastes like blueberry pie. Don’t say we didn’t warn you Violet Beauregard! Sensual and structured, this is our ideal Malbec - the only problem being how we can keep some long enough to watch it evolve in bottle.
