… Shiraz that fits perfectly with our philosophy of people, place and purpose.
Out of stock
Ah foiled again. Zonte’s Footstep represents generations of grape growers who have not made Shiraz from the Barossa. Well, Baron Von Nemesis, the time has come…. all the milk chocolate in the world just won’t do if you want something dark. We scoped the entire Barossa to find this tiny parcel of old vine Shiraz that fits perfectly with our philosophy of people, place and purpose.

“Barossa’s the place (they say “Ba-raw-sa” down under) for Shiraz, and here’s a well-balanced example at a nice price. It’s very dry, with deep black cherry, blackberry, menthol and leafy herb flavours that will go great with a herb encrusted pork tenderloin. Best Shiraz and a Gold Award winner at the 2015 Monterey International Wine Competition”

“Bright medium clear black garnet colour. Bright, fruity, floral spicy aromas of dried fruits and soda bread pastry with a oily, lively, dry- yet-fruity medium-full body and a peppery, medium-long tart berries, spiced roasted root vegetables, peppery spices, and nuts finish with fruit well-integrated firm tannins and moderate oak. A nice structured shiraz with real aging potential.”
