… 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.

Wine Companion Magazine, James Halliday
“Deep colour; a richly textured dark berry/plum bouquet transitions into a medium to full-bodied palate, where the fruit of the bouquet is joined by ripe tannins and a dash of cedary oak. Needs 5 years for its best, but has plenty of chew on now.”
James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2016, p. 755
“Deep crimson-purple; a mix of satsuma and blood plum floods the bouquet with a spicy and meaty undertone; the generous medium to full-bodied palate picks up those characters seamlessly, adding ripe, powdery tannins. More powerful than its siblings.”
Wine Showcase New Releases, April 2014
“Very elegant and appealing nose packed with rich, chocolaty shiraz aromas. Palate aligns with aromas. This wine is offering plenty of cellaring potential if you can wait.”
