Reviews and Ratings

Zonte's Footstep Chocolate Factory 2018 is a savoury, juicy 100% Shiraz aged in both American and French oak for one year. Deep, dark purple-ruby in the glass with aromas of cherry compote, earthy cocoa and baking spice. Big and bold with ripe dark fruit, cherry, pepper, cinnamon and ginger spice flavours on the palate. Juicy and balanced with food-friendly acidity. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
