Product Description

Zontes Footstep Shiraz - Zontes Footstep - Baron von Nemesis Shiraz

Region : Barossa

Vintage: Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Winemaker: Ben Riggs

Colour: Barossa blood red – i.e. deep crimson with a purple hue.

Nose: Super blackberries and pure unadulterated 99% Cocoa chocolate. Lifted blood plum and raspberries and some dark pepper and brambly spice smells.

Entry: Generous black fruits, like mulberries and boysenberries, a full and frank Shiraz start.

Middle Palate: Classic Barossa; generous, flavoursome and super sweet blackberry pie with dark, dry chocolate mouth feel.

After Palate: Begins with sweet fruit then tightens up with fine fruit and oak tannin. Great flavour and composition. Sweet spice cuts through plus hints of jamminess.

Finish: Youthful austerity as you would expect from such a classic old school Shiraz, but there is also plenty of fineness to the tannin and dark chocolate nuances in the lengthy finish.

 Analysis
Alcohol: 14.5% alc/Vol 
RS: 1.98 g/L


if you can’t beat them. join them. Baron von Nemesis Barossa Shiraz is the best of the Barossa and brilliant with anything off the grill.
 
Ah! Foiled again. Zonte’s Footstep represents generations of grape growers who have not made Shiraz from the
Barossa. Well, Baron Von Nemesis, the time has come.... all the milk chocolate in the world just won’t do if you want  something dark. We scoped the entire Barossa to find this tiny parcel of old vine Shiraz that fits perfectly with our  philosophy of people, place and purpose.
 
Zonte’s Footstep is named after the 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 truth is out there in the vineyard…. but the proof is in this bottle!
 
This is how late chairman Evans OBE made us all do it.
