Product Description

Zontes Footstep Lake Doctor Shiraz Viognier

… Shiraz Viognier smells like a ladies handbag and tastes like a man’s wallet. Drink with anything off the BBQ, and a second glass.

Region : Langhorne Creek

Vintage:  Current vintage (Enquiries welcome)

WINEMAKER Ben Riggs

VARIETAL COMP. 95% Shiraz; 5% Viognier

Colour: Deep purple with a royal purple hue.

Nose: Pepper spice and a hint of stonefruit. Damson Plum pudding and blackberry jam. Pure rose oil and just a whaft of violets.

Entry: Rich and soft and fragrant red fruits. Some tangy cedar and lifted cigar box characters.

Middle Palate: Juicy round blackberry sweetness, tempered with some taught but typical Shiraz tannin.

After Palate: A peacock’s tail of juicy fruit flavour that fans out in the mouth with rolling soft, fine grained fruit tannin.

Finish: Malt, cedar and intense blackberry and caramelised orange peel. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers.

Summary: This is the twelfth consecutive vintage of this wine. Though it will drink great now, especially with anything off the grill, it should cellar well as previous vintages.

ALCOHOL %/VOL 14.5%

RESIDUAL SUGAR 3.4 g/L

Winemaking:
The fruit for the Lake Doctor comes from a single block 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 malo-lactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to new & well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to12 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.
