ZONTE'S FOOTSTEP "LOVE SYMBOL" - Grenache - McLaren Vale, AUSTRALIA

Colour: Deep purple with a royal purple hue.
Nose: Primary quality. Briary, brambly fragrances redolent of black cherry. Earthy with a whaft of violets.
Entry: Rich and soft and fragrant red fruits. Some tangy cedar and tobacco characters.
Middle Palate: Juicy round plum sweetness, tempered by the Grenache’s fine tannin.
After Palate: A peacock’s tail of juicy berry flavour that fans out in the mouth with rolling silky, fine grained fruit tannin.
Finish: Black tea tannin with notes of Asian spice, Damson plums, and red cherry. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers.
In Summary: Though it will drinks well now, it should cellar for 5 to 7 years. It’s versatility means that it can be paired with virtually any food, but especially well suited to slow-cooked meats, stews, and casseroles.
