About

This inaugural release of the Unico Zelo Exocarpos Nebbiolo is one that Brendan and Laura Carter have been excited about for some time, and the wine is just superb.

It comes from a special Nebbiolo site in the Adelaide Hills - in fact one of the region’s oldest and most respected. It contains 8 different clones of Nebbiolo, with small portions of Barbera scattered within as in the variety Italian home Piedmonte. After falling defunct for several years the vineyard has been rejuvenated in recent times with this being its first crop the pair have received.

The Carters have taken a more classical approach to making this wine, and the result is simply tremendous. As they said themselves, “We’re honored (and humbled) to have the opportunity to produce wine from these grapes, and show our expression of this site.”

Nebbiolo lovers rejoice!

What It Tastes Like

High floral tones of violets, aniseed, bergamot and leather. Gorgeous flow through the mouth - a really sensual mid palate. Slightly dainty but persistant tannin wrapped around crisp bell clear fruit. Classic Nebbiolo shape with Australian fruit purity. Special wine.
