After making Zonte’s Footstep Rosé for over a decade, we named it in honour of all the Scarlet Ladybirds in our vineyard which eat other tiny pests like aphids and keep our fruit fabulous. The Scarlet Ladybird Rosé is made to our house style… which we feel is a seriously fun drink.

Bright light medium reddish pink colour. Bright, fruity, herbal aromas and flavours of dark cherries, nuts, and hint of eucalyptus with a soft, tangy, dryish medium-full body and a warming, layered, relaxed vanilla nuts and delicate spices finish with earthy tannins and no oak. A very tasty and well balanced rose with mouthwatering fruit.

Pale light ruby color. Interesting aromas of dried strawberry, graham cracker, and cornichon with a silky, lively, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, interesting, medium- length blood orange, melon, and reduced lemon finish with no oak. A nice dry adult rose.

What makes this Rose perfect for summer? Scarlet Ladybird Rose is perfect with Asian cuisine or dishes that are a bit spicy. All in all, a seriously fun drink: We suggest drinking it whilst young on a picnic rug with chilled prawns, a second bottle and friends and family.
