Product Description

Zontes Footstep Cabernet - Zontes Footstep Avalon Tree Cabernet

Region: Fleurieu Peninsula

Varietal composition: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Tempranillo

Vintage : Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

The fruit for Avalon Tree comes from one block in the heart of the Langhorne Creek and another in the Blewitt Springs ub-region of the McLaren Vale. 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 regal and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.

Colour: Opaque inky black/purple with a deep regal purple hue.

Nose:Inviting aromas of cassis, dark cherries and licorice smells with undertones of cedar, dark chocolate & clotted cream.

Entry: Direct, full and fine and precise Cabernet berry fruits. A perfect Cabernet entry. Alert bright fruit.

Middle Palate: No callow Cabernet “donut hole”… just velvety, mouth filling fruit, especially blackberries, blackcurrants and cedar. Juicy fresh berry tart-sweetness,
tempered with some chewy but typical Cabernet tannin.

After Palate: Enticing cigar box and plush fruit flavours with taught, trademark tannin. Intense and complex but with the depth of dark berry flavours.

Finish: This wine hangs about after you have tasted it for so long it seems almost self defeating, although the tannins call for another sip whilst it’s still in the mouth. Precise ‘line and length’ that lingers on and on with ripe blackcurrants and cherries, liquorice and spicy cedar finish.
