Brendan and Laura Carter from Unico Zelo are never ones to follow the rules, so it comes as little surprise to see them release what is a pretty serious Merlot, of all things. As Brendan put to us, "It's the one variety that doesn't conform with what we do... and we take a bit of an Italian spin on it." Far from the over-ripe, poorly thought out Merlots of yesteryear, this comes from a specialist Merlot vineyard in the Adelaide Hills and is grown and made with love. A real surprise packet!

What it Tastes Like

Nothing like the simple, jammy Merlots of the past, this is bright, fresh and super perfumed with jubey blue and back fruits. The palate has a core of juicy plums and blackcurrants, with refreshing acidity and chewy tannins on close. A different Merlot for sure but delicious.
