After making Zonte’s Footstep Rose for over a decade, we named it in honour of all the Scarlet Ladybirds in our vineyard which eat other tiny pests like aphids and keep our fruit fabulous. The Scarlet Ladybird Rose is made to our house style... which we feel is a seriously fun drink.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for Scarlet Ladybird is sourced from hand tended blocks in McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek.
Production Notes
The harvested fruit is destemmed and crushed and slowly drained 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.
Winemaker Notes
Ben Riggs
Food Pairing Notes
A fine accompaniment to Asian cuisine, or dishes with a hint of chilli or lemongrass.

Other Notes

Scarlet Ladybird, is a serious pink drink, deep and dry, that always comes up smelling of roses. Remember, real men drink pink; though Scarlet is always a lady!
