Zonte’s Footstep has been on quest to find and grow the world’s best white varieties for more than a decade, and the Verdelho we believe is one of them. To start with, it will be like  biting into a fresh gooseberry - bracing and zingy. Tropical fruits like mango and passionfruit will invite your palate. Best drunk as relief from thirst with meals and mates.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Colour: Pristine springwater-like with hints of limey green straw / Nose: Fragrant, herbaceous, gooseberries and lines. Ginger flower smells as well / Entry: Almost like biting into a fresh gooseberry. Bracing and zingy / Middle palate: Wonderfully mouth-filling medium bodied flavours of tropical fruits, especially mango and passionfruit / After palate: Just mouth-watering flavoursome, the essence of Verdelho with no winemaking artifact whatsoever to detract from the pure honeydew melon and zippy lime and quince fruit flavours / Finish: Distinctly refreshing but long stone fruit and even green banana flavours, marred together with classical Verdelho crunchiness and juicy fruit acidity.

Vineyard Notes
The original Sea Mist 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 tenth consecutive vintage of Zonte's Footstep Sea Mist Verdelho released.
