…Don’t say we didn’t warn you Violet Beauregard!
Out of stock
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!

“Black garnet color. Bright aromas and flavors of dill pickle, blackberry pie, pistachio nougat, and powdered lime with a satiny, lively, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, long blueberry cobbler, minty spices, and chocolate finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak. A delicious, zesty, spicy malbec.”
Rob Geddes MW, 2016 Australian Wine Vintages, 33rd edition, p. 460
“Amazing floral aromas, with violets, crushed rose, plum, black currant and free from the sappy leafy edge that some exhibit. The mouth feel and texture are extraordinary. Silky talc, powder fine, even and long with black currant, a lick of sappiness and liquorice flavours and a touch of spice on the finish.”
Nick’s Wine Merchants, May 2016
Opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red purple hue. Nosing reveals aromas of blueberries, plum, dark raspberries, liquorice and spice. Plump flavours of ripe dark plum, dark raspberries and blueberries are intermixed with traces of liquorice followed by some earth and spice on the back palate. Opulent mouthfeel with sturdy yet velvet like tannins. Aftertaste of ripe dark blueberries, dark plum, black raspberries and spicy earth. A round opulent Malbec packed with juicy fruit.
