Age of Enlightenment, one might say, is when an individual becomes comfortable, self-assured and fully expressed in their own self. This awakening can occur at any time in life, but in that moment, one transcends to another level of expressive power, self-confidence, balance and harmony.
The same can be said for grapevines. A vineyard, its grapevines, grower and Mother Earth all work harmoniously, producing fruit with balance and expressive character. This in turn captivates the winemaker, who transforms the fruit into wine imbuing the intrinsic characteristics of memorable quality.
Age of Enlightenment is our incantation of the revered relationship of harmony and the result was worth waiting for - our Age of Enlightenment Shiraz won 'Best Shiraz' at the San Francisco International Wine Competition and we're absolutely thrilled with the recognition of this delicious expression of Shiraz.
Zonte's also received Gold Medals for the following wines: 2019 Lake Doctor Shiraz, 2019 Canto Sangiovese Lagrein and 2019 Blackberry Patch Cabernet.
We are ecstatic about our Age of Enlightenment Shiraz receiving the Best Shiraz award. It's an honor to see our wine recognised by one of the largest wine competitions in the world!
