Zonte’s Footstep Violet Beauregard Malbec
Blueberries, and when we say blue blueberries, we mean blueberries. This is intense mouth staining colour. Nose is again blueberries. Also classic Malbec mulberry, black
plums and notes of cedar and wafts of violets. With just a hint of fresh baked pastry. Intense entry, juicy plums, black cherry and again lots of blueberries. Supple. mouthfilling and generous with a plush, quite sensual middle palate. It is well-structured despite the lashings of this fresh fruit. Really flavoursome, rich sweet berry fruits and dark plums and baking spice on top of rolling red fruits and…Blueberry pie! The finish is lush and mouth filling with a glycerol sweetness balanced by gentle tannins and a soft fresh acidity.

The fruit for the Violet Beauregard comes from two blocks on a single vineyard in the heart of the Langhorne Creek. Primary fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malolactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to new & well-seasoned puncheons and aged for up to 12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration. This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
