Zonte's Footstep is a proudly independent Australian wine producer established in 2003. They take their vineyards and their wine, but not themselves, too seriously. The name of this wine "Violet Beauregard" is a homage to the Champion gum-chewer who turns into a blueberry in Roald Dahl's classic children's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". This Malbec lives up to its namesake, bursting with blueberry and sweet berry fruit characters with a lush finish. Best consumed without Veruca Salt or Augustus Gloop

Nose

Blueberries, and when we say blue blueberries, we mean blueberries. This is intense mouth staining colour. Nose is again blueberries. Also classic Malbec mulberry, red cherries and notes of cedar and wafts of violets. With just a hint of fresh baked pastry.

Palate

Intense entry, juicy and super youthful "grapeiness" again lots of blueberries. Almost overwhelming. Generous and quite sensual middle palate, it is structured despite the lashings of fresh fruit. Really rich and lush. Flavoursome, rich sweet berry fruits and Damson plum is on top of rolling red fruits and...Blueberry pie! The finish is lush and mouth filling with a glycerol sweetness balanced by gentle tannins and a soft fresh acidity.

Background

The fruit for the Violet Beauregard comes from two blocks on a single vineyard 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.
