Wine Advocate 88 points - Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Lake Doctor Shiraz is slightly reduced to begin, giving way to aromas of freshly crushed black cherries, blackberries and mulberries with touches of tree bark, charcoal and pepper. Medium to full-bodied, it gives plenty of peppery red and black berry flavors in the mouth balanced by lively acid and a medium level of chewy tannins, finishing long. Drinking now, it should remain good through 2015+. (Dec 2012)

Wine maker notes
The Zonte’s Footstep Lake Doctor Vineyard is on the shores of Lake Alexandrina where, each summer afternoon the house-cooling breeze of our ‘Lake Doctor’ arrives and revives vines and vignerons alike. We have released this blend from the Lake Doctor Vineyard each vintage since 2003.

Producer
Zonte’s Footstep is a proudly independent Australian wine company. We take our vineyards and our wine, but not ourselves, seriously. Mr. Ben Riggs and Zar Brooks teamed together with a group of mates to launch Zonte’s Footstep from vintage 2003 and the wines are now at the vanguard of a revolution of Australian wine styles. A couple of wine scribes recently noted; ”The critically acclaimed Zonte’s Footstep wines are not ‘old world’, nor even ‘new world’, Zonte’s is out of this world!” and ”Zonte’s Footstep; Jump on board this fabulously priced wine and enjoy one of the best value wines in the Southern Hemisphere.” Matthew Jukes Zonte’s Footstep is named after a 19th century Zante currant vineyard, as new plantings follow the original footstep. The currant business dried up, but Zonte’s Footstep became our blueprint... In 2003 we pooled old white utes and new-ish tractors to grow the best grapes from the best vineyards. All we want to do is taste our fruit in our wine, so we charged our reigning winemaker, Mr. Ben Riggs, with one goal; to make the best wines we can, true to vineyard and variety, so long as we make a bloody good drink!
