Description

Zonte’s Footstep has been on a quest to grow the world’s best white varieties for more than a decade. Our ‘shining sword rising from the water’ moment wasn’t quite of Arthurian legend, but by misty dam early one vintage morning the first rapier-like cut of this Sauvignon Blanc inspired our Excalibur. Exquiste, varietal and moreish.

 

Excalibur Sauvignon Blanc is an exciting, fresh, food-friendly white wine (especially paired with seafood). At Zonte’s Footstep, we drink most of the Excalibur well-chilled, on a sunny afternoon with friends and family… usually followed by a second glass!

Awards & Accolades

Wine Genius, April 2015

“Pale steely green in colour, lightly grassy with blossom, lime and punchy sour pineapple. Shapely and ripe, a long and vibrant expression of Sauvignon Blanc, all underpinned by gentle minerality and refreshing acidity.”

Wine Review Online, Rich Cook, 31st March 2015
“This is a fresh and flowery crisp white wine that delivers melon, lemon, light grass and herb notes, with a soft entry and a refreshing acid kick at the end that gets you salivating for more. There’s a cleansing mineral note in the finish, but it doesn’t cover the mix of flavours. Very well made at this price point. Best Sauvignon Blanc, and a Gold Award winner at the 2015 Monterey International Wine Competition.”
