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.


Zonte’s Footstep has long produced Shiraz from most of South Australia’s iconic wine regions, celebrating our vast regional diversity with this noble variety. Always looking for a “sense of place”, we searched high-and-low to locate a jewel (or should we say Julie) in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. One of South Australia’s coolest viticultural regions, the Adelaide HIlls produce wines of elegance, finesse and prettiness; lets say our Fair Lady.

“Opaque black violet colour. Floral, elegant aromas and flavours of violet and mulberry jam, cherry blossom, charred oak, and ripe plum with a velvety, lively, fruity full body and an appealing, medium-length roasted beet salad with pistachios, fine leather, and black pepper sauce finish with chewy, coating tannins and moderate oak. A super pleasing Shiraz full of purple fruits and flowers.”
