If it looks like a blueberry, smells like a blueberry and tastes like a blueberry pie then VIOLET BEAUREGARD you are. Best drunk without Veruca Salt or Augustus Gloop. On the vine our perfectly round, plump and violet-purple Zonte’s Footsteps Malbec looks like blueberries, when you crush, ferment and pour then into a glass it smells like blueberries, and in the mouth our Malbec tastes like blueberry pie. Don’t say we didn’t warn you Violet Beauregard!

James Halliday

“Strong purple-crimson; the growing season was, of course, very good, but it seems to have been particularly favourable for Langhorne Creek Malbec; here the juicy/jam plum fruit also has more structure than most of its peers.”

4.5 stars

Winestate Magazine 2015 (Vol 38 Issue 1)

“Interesting aromas of rich, red fruits and toffee apple suggesting subtle oak treatment. A medium-sweet palate of good weight, texture and length, with confected red fruits and balanced acidity.”
