Zonte’s Footstep has been on a quest to find and grow the world’s best white varities in regions that express the fruit’s best attributes for more than a decade.
The Doctoressa di Lago, or Lake Doctor is a cooling breeze that courses over Lake Alexandrina from the Great Southern Ocean which arrives each summer afternoon to revive our vines and vignerons alike from the summer heat of the day. Our beloved Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio vineyard, overlooks in the distance the blue beauty of Lake Alexandrina in the distant south longing for relief she produces.
All in all a pure pear Pinot Grigio with excellent lifted smells and deft acidity that make it the perfect aperitif of wine for shellfish. Delicate and delightful.

Bright light yellow straw color. Delicate, fruity aromas and flavors of peaches, lime, and plantain with a soft, vibrant, dryish medium-to- full body and a smooth, medium-length Meyer lemon and minerals finish with crunchy, fruit tannins and no oak. A mouthwatering pinot grigio with refreshing acidity and an elegant style.
