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

For too long Grenache has been a backup performer. It is time for our beloved Love Symbol to shine as a solo artist. Love Symbol's 'autograph' is its soft-yet juicy tannins and cleansing acidity that fill the mouth making you yearn for another performance. Aromas of rich red fruits and plum with fine-grained fruit tannins. A wine of stature, elegance, prettiness, and poise. Our Love Symbol will make you fall in love. We promise. Its versatility means that it can be paired with virtually any food, but especially well suited to slow-cooked meats, stews, and casseroles.

Critique Review

I love Grenache and McLaren Vale holds promise for the variety. Kirsch, damson plum, candied orange zest and Asian spice. Oak allusions and some fuzzy tannins hold in the seams.
