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.

Awards & Accolades

95 Points

James Halliday Wine Companion 2018
“95% cabernet sauvignon and 5% tempranillo from Blewitt Springs and Langhorne Creek, matured for 12 months in used hogsheads. The colour is deep and bright, appropriate for the deep, medium to full- bodied varietal fruit on the bouquet and palate. The firm, but fine, tannins are pure cabernet in taste and texture, and make the wine.”

Tastings.com, New Release Wines 2016 (published 18/12/16)
“Dark ruby black color. Fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of blueberry cobbler a la mode, chocolate nuts and mint, and cherry cola with a satiny, tangy, fruity medium body and a tingling, compelling, long chocolate lemon and orange peels, menthol mint lozenge, and craisin trail mix finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak. A spicy, chewy cabernet that will be great with Latin or Asian beef dishes.”
