Description

Ah foiled again! All the milk chocolate in the world just won’t do if you want something dark, broody and mischievous.

This gusty Barossa Shiraz, aged in a combination of French and American hogsheads for a new, has great richness with line and length. Await the hit of dark chocolate and sugar plums, the wine deep, vibrant, fleshy and accessible, with a sweet Christmas spice finish to cut through the hints of jamminess.

Underlying purity from the vineyard, it holds onto youthful austerity while delivering as you would expect from classic Barossa Shiraz – cool and intelligent – Germanic heritage abounds. Drink with hard local cheeses or, naturally, dark chocolate.

Producer: Zonte's Footstep

Wine collective Zonte’s Footstep, led by Canadian-at-large Brad Rey, produced its first vintage in 2003 with grapes sourced from their own as well as their peers’ vineyards. Their preferred regions were those that had reputations for producing wine with expressive, varietal characteristics and were located in the McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and the Barossa Valley. Hence the simple, but diligent pursuit of producing wines that reflect a sense of place, style and purpose with a personality (and a face) to match.

The origins of the name and the idea behind the brand comes from ancient history. From the 1893 planting of Zante ‘currant’ to replanting in the 1920s with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, the wines are a tribute to the journey of the grapes in the vineyard. In 1999 a group of like minded wine buffs gathered together and purchased the vineyard and whilst re-planting with Viognier, Sangiovese and other new and exciting grape varieties, some large boulders with unique fossilised footprints were discovered, thus cementing their name and lending creative and historical context to the venture.

Nowadays the wine selection tightly focuses on Regions of Shiraz, the Mediterranean, Sense of Place and Limited Release and each wine has an accompanying ‘art story’ which makes the journey the grape has taken, more visual. All that aside, the wines are just fantastic!
