Zonte's Footstep Shiraz Blend Langhorne Creek Shiraz/Viognier 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very floral and spicy, apricotty with notes of honeycomb and a slight gamey edge to the plum and lightly jammy black raspberry fruit with a hint of white pepper. This screams out for some lamb! Restrained in the mouth with lighter bodied attack that is a bit drying on the palate. A bit of an earthy style with jammy red and black fruits, a bit peachy even on the backend turning sweet and thicker with the relief of a minerally finish, complex and rich without being quite over the top 91pts

Zonte's Footstep:
Zonte's Footsteps is located at Langhorne Creek on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia - one of Australia's oldest wine grape districts.

This is best described as an easy drinking pleasant wine. Nice amount of spice with a clean finish. I didn't find the wine to be powerful, rather a little subdued and medium in body.

Seriously powerful red, but it has so much rich flavour in the mouth - without being overly spicy. Very high quality wine at a bargain price.

A real mouthful of smoky, tar-scented blackberry and licorice flavors - Great with spicy food
