The Zonte’s Footstep Lake Doctor Vineyard is on the shores of Lake Alexandrina where, each summer afternoon the house-cooling breeze of our ‘Lake Doctor’ arrives and revives vines and vignerons alike. This Shiraz offers you a peacock’s tail of juicy fruit flavour that fans out in the mouth with rolling soft, fine grained fruit tannin. Drink with anything off the BBQ, and especially a second glass.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for the Lake Doctor comes from a single block in the heart of the Langhorne Creek. The Zonte’s Footstep Lake Doctor Vineyard is on the shores of Lake Alexandrina where, each summer afternoon the house-cooling breeze of our ‘Lake Doctor’ arrives and revives vines and vignerons alike. We have released this blend form the Lake Doctor Vineyard each vintage since 2003.
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 unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.

Shiraz Viognier smells like a ladies handbag and tastes like a man’s wallet. Drink with anything off the BBQ, and
especially a second glass.
