Precise ‘line and length’ that lingers on and on with ripe blackcurrants and cherries, liquorice and spicy cedar finish.

Cabernet Sauvignion is called the king of grapes and at Zonte’s Footstep it is so revered. Arthurian Legend had it that whoever could pull Excalibur from the stone ruled under the Avalon Tree would be king. Our Avalon Tree is a top picnic stock; we even have a round table!
This wine hangs about after you have tasted it for so long it seems almost self defeating, although the tannins call for another sip whilst it’s still in the mouth. Precise ‘line and length’ that lingers on and on with ripe blackcurrants and cherries, liquorice and spicy cedar finish.

“The ‘Avalon Tree’ label from Zonte’s Footstep always over delivers at the price. Deeply primary with cassis, plums and mulberry across both palate and bouquet. Fine tannins and cedary vannillan oak create a generous palate structure with the hint of Tempranillo adding complexity and vitality towards the finish.”
