Zonte’s Footstep has been on a quest to find and grow the world’s best white varities in regions that express the fruit’s best attributes for more than a decade. The Doctoressa di Lago, or Lake Doctor is a cooling breeze that courses over Lake Alexandrina from the Great Southern Ocean which arrives each summer afternoon to revive our vines and vignerons alike from the summer heat of the day. Our beloved Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio vineyard, overlooks the blue beauty ofLake Alexandrina in the distant south longing for the relief she produces. All in all a pure pear Pinot Grigio with excellent lifted smells and deft acidity that make it the perfect aperitif of wine for shellfish. Delicate and delightful.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for the Doctoressa di Lago is sourced from hand tended blocks in the Woodside sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. Our beloved Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio vineyard, overlooks the blue beauty of Lake Alexandrina in the distant south longing for the relief she produces.
Production Notes
The harvested fruit is destemmed and crushed into stainless steel tanks with only the finest quality free run juice being chilled to 5 degrees celcius to preserve the expression of the fruit. Fermentation takes place in these tanks where the wine is allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation if it occurs. It is then racked off gross lees and cold settled prior to bottling This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
