Product Description

Zonte’s Footstep has been on a quest to find and grow the world’s best white varieties for more than a decade. Our Pinot Grigio is named Doctoressa Di Lago, or Lake Doctor, a the vineyard is on the shores of Lake Alexandrina where, each summer afternoon, the house cooling breeze of our “Doctoressa di Lago” arrives and revives vines and vignerons alike.

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

In 2003 a group of mates pooled old white ‘utes’ and new-ish tractors to grow the best grapes from the best vineyards. 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 wine true to vineyard so long as it is a bloody good drink!

The Doctoressa di Lago vineyard is on a 40 million year old alluvial plain, nestled between two rivers adjacent to Lake Alexandrina, upstream from the River Murray’s sea mouth. It is
an oasis in a cool desert with vines planted on their own roots, in maritime red sands that sit over pre-Cambrian Limestone and ideal for growing grapes

Colour Pale straw with light grey hue.

Nose Pure fresh pear and effusive melon and apricot on the nose and fresh floral scents weaving their way across the white fruit spectrum.

Entry Just like biting into a fresh pear, more Nashi than other varieties, slightly chilled of course. Crisp and fine.

Middle Palate Surprisingly soft considering the zingy start and following tight finish.

After Palate The fresh acidity coupled with an enticing spice quality through the back end of the palate make this a really interesting but refreshing

Finish A seamless and zingy pure fruit finish. Refreshing flavoursome and fine.

In Summary All in all a pure pear Pinot Grigio with excellent lifted smells and deft acidity that make it the perfect aperitif of wine for shellfish. Delicate and delightful.
