Unico Zelo husband-and-wife team Brendan and Laura Carter are arguably Australia's most passionate Fiano advocates. Of the pair's three single vineyard Fianos, this is the 'Grand Cru', the wine that Brendan (who occasionally operates under the #FianoMan alias) told us is "our baby, the Fiano that receives the most attention". Coming from cooler high altitude Kersbrook sub-region in the Adelaide Hills, the 'Alluvium' is the most structural and no doubt age-worthy of the trio. In the Carter's own words, "it's our special-occasion Fiano, one for the cellar and one for the table." This is Fiano at another level. Enjoy.

What it Tastes Like

Subtle notes of honeysuckle and grilled nuts on the nose, but this is all about the palate and structure - almost Riesling-esque in its incredible minerally acid. Defintiely some quartz influence there from these unique soils. Just ripe stone fruits, hints of sherbet and citrus and Fiano's trademark texture and mouthfeel. Finishes long and fresh - it really leaves an impression. All class.
