Reviews and Ratings

A juicy, vibrant, well-priced Australian rosé. Full-bodied Australian rose with lots of acidity. Raspberry aromas and lots of spice. Pair with cold cuts. MINE: Zonte's Footstep Scarlet Ladybird 2017 is a great value, full-bodied vibrant and juicy rosé from the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache wine grapes for Zonte's Footstep, Scarlet Ladybird (2016) were sourced from a single site vineyard. The Scarlet Ladybird refers to the Ladybugs that prey on vineyard pests like aphids. Look for savoury herb and ripe raspberry aromas and flavours on the palate. This vintage was awarded Gold Exceptional at the 2017 World Value Wine Challenge Best Value Australian Rosé. OTHER: Mid-pink with blood orange hues. Delicate aromas of strawberries, lemons and fresh blossoms. The palate is vibrant and succulent with gentle ripe citrus flavours. A beautifully balanced rosé with good palate weight. Drink Date: 2019. Score - 92 (Toni Paterson, MW, therealreview.com, Dec. 18, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
