Zonte's Footstep 'Blackberry Patch' Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Fleurieu Peninsula

A wine with elegance and poise

As we head to the vineyards with our shiny new buckets to put the juicy berries in, we dream of the perfect blackberry pie that will be made from the fruit that we pick. Wafts of fresh baked pastry; macerated blackberry flavours and the texture of clotted cream... now that’s our Blackberry Patch!

TASTING NOTES

Opaque inky black/purple colour with a deep regal purple hue. Inviting aromas of cassis, dark cherries and liquorice with undertones of cedar, dark chocolate & clotted cream.  No hollow Cabernet “doughnut hole”, just velvety, mouth-filling fruit, especially blackberries, blackcurrants and cedar. Juicy fresh berry tart-sweetness, tempered with some chewy but typical Cabernet tannin. Enticing cigar box and plush fruit flavour after palate trademark tannin. Intense and complex but with the depth of dark berry flavours.

REVIEWS

2.5/3 Stars - The Telegraph
"This wine greeted me with a smile - at least, it made me smile at the firstsip. Asthe name suggests, aromas of blackberries and baking spice perfume the glass, followed by flavors of cassis and berries. Asthe evening drew on and the bottle drew down, each sip added a nuance ofspice or an insight of fruit. The last few sips were like dessert, or the fine cigar that punctuates an enjoyable evening,."

"Delectably styled and composed, the wine shows dark fruit richness together with smoked game, almond and fragrantspice notes on the nose. It's plump and succulent, offering fabulousfruit power, wellsupported by silky texture and fine tannins with a prolonged deliciousfinish. At its best: now to 2030"
