Zonte’s Footstep ‘Lake Doctor’ Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2013

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 09-Jun-2015
Named after the cooling afternoon breeze off Lake Alexandrina in the Langhorne Creek district, where the fruit for this wine is sourced. 95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in new and seasoned oak hogsheads. Full, impenetrable black-hued purple-red colour. This has a tightly bound, concentrated and intense nose of ripe black berried fruits with earthy plum and an amalgam of lifted herbs, black and white pepper, exotic florals and spicy, cedary oak. Full-bodied, rich, sweet and lusciously ripe flavours of black berry and plum fruits, liquorice and black pepper show with layers of herbs, florals and spices. The mouthfeel is vibrantly juicy and lively with fine, grainy tannin extraction and grip and discreet acidity lending energy and drive. The flavours and mouthfeel lead to a very long, sweet, black-fruited finish with liquorice and aromatic herbal notes. This is a rich, lusciously aromatic Shiraz and Viognier blend with vibrant fruit and fine structure. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 7-9+ years. 18.5/20 Jun 2015 RRP $24.99
