Overview

This wine is a tropical retreat (with a Mexican twist) in a glass - muddled mint mojito by the pool, in Fiji. Think of being on a deserted tropical island, breaking open a fresh coconut and guzzling the sweet juice that is inside.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

Looks like the purity of a spring - crystal clear with some slices of lime (like the ones you use for a lemon lime and bitters). Smells like freshly made lime cordial that your mum used to make (before she got too busy at work). Tastes like a very well put together mint mojito that you can't get from just any old bar, and your grandma's marmalade.

Food Matching

Drink with Coffin bay oysters (if you feel like being lucky), a seafood platter, Asian food from that restaurant round the corner that doesn't look the most appealing, but delivers the best Asian food in the area.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Zonte's Footstep is a proudly independent Australian wine company. We take our vineyards and our wine, but not ourselves, seriously.

In 2003 we pooled old white utes and new-ish tractors to grow the best grapes from the best vineyards and the wines are now at the vanguard of a revolution of Australian wine styles.

A couple of wine scribes recently noted; "The critically acclaimed Zonte's Footstep wines are not ‘old world', nor even ‘new world', Zonte's is out of this world!" and "Zonte's Footstep; Jump on board this fabulously priced wine and enjoy one of the best value wines in the Southern Hemisphere." Matthew Jukes

Zonte's Footstep is named after a 19th century Zante currant vineyard, as new plantings follow the original footstep. The currant business dried up, but Zonte's Footstep became our blueprint...

All we want to do is taste our fruit in our wine, so we charged our reigning winemaker, Mr. Ben Riggs, with one goal; to make the best wines we can, true to vineyard and variety, so long as we make a bloody good drink!

“The truth is out there in the vineyard... but the proof is in the bottle”
