About The Wine
A favourite amongst those who've tracked the Carters from the beginning: the Esoterico is the wild child of the UZ range...
With Brendan and Laura's experience with this style of wine a little richer now, the execution of this skin contact white is on another level.
Supercharged aromatics from the Muscat of Alexandria and the Bianco D'Alessano, with a little boost to the mouthfeel from their old friend Fiano. They nailed the recipe this year.
It's orange in colour and cloudy as all get out, it lives up to its esoteric name but with oodles of drinkability. That's what these skinsy whites should all be about.
About Unico Zelo
Unico Zelo is the project of winemaking couple Brendan and Laura Carter. In their words, their aim is to create “Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines” and “Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion.”
Since bursting onto the scene in 2014 with their eye-catching, outrageously good value alternative vino, the Carters have spread their wings and their range.
They now make a large suite of wines, including single vineyard examples of Fiano, Nero d'Avola and Nebbiolo.
They are one of the most dynamic winemaking duos in the Adelaide Hills.
