Zonte's Footstep Scarlet Ladybird Rosé 2020

To honour the cute little polka-dotted predators who prey on tiny pests like aphids and keep our fruit pristine. These select parcels of fruit become the ultimate mélange of prettiness and punch (fruit punch that is).

The fruit for Scarlet Ladybird is sourced from hand-tended blocks in McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek.

The harvested fruit is destemmed and crushed and slowly drained into stainless steel tanks with only the finest quality free run juice being chilled to 5 degrees Celsius to preserve the expression of the fruit.

Fermentation takes place in these tanks where the wine is allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation if it occurs. It is then racked off gross lees and cold settled prior to bottling.

This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.

Salmon pink. Brilliant see-through orange-pink indicating what follows. An audacious array of floral aromas, more specifically violets.

A veritable summer pudding of fresh macerated berries and perfume/spice dominated by strawberry and Campari-like cherry smells.

Super fresh entry, zingy with lipsmacking nectarine and berry fruit flavours.

Medium-bodied, juicy fruited with a touch of natural sweetness. Mouth-filling tart “Strawberries and cream” with soft spice rounding out a lush mouthful.

Flavoursome with fresh acidity and a tiny tweak of soft tannin taming the finish.
