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

Cabernet Sauvignon 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.

Wine Guide, The Age Melbourne, Huon Hooke, 17th March 2015
“The colour is deep and dark, the bouquet loaded with dark-chocolate and savoury machine-oil notes. The palate is smoothly textured and rich, with balance and accessibility.”

Wine Companion Magazine, ‘Cabernet On Show’, James Halliday, April-May 2015
“Deep purple in colour, on the nose cassis, black cherries with undertones of cedar and dark chocolate. Velvety mouth-filling fruit tempered with typical cabernet tannin. Intense, complex fine and precise.”
