About The Wine

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir might not be as 'out there' as much of the Unico Zelo range, but when you look deeper this wine is a unique idea in its own right.

The concept behind the Harvest project is a profit share between Unico Zelo and local growers. All of UZs proceeds go to charity, the growers see greater profits then their fruit would usually supply - it's a win/win wine in concept and, happily, the juice is just delightful.

The 2017 release is a light, bouncy Pinot all about easy drinking and deliciousness. Hats off Brendan and Laura! Lovely wine, great cause and super value.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

It's a light, jubey, soft little Pinot this year. All sweet cherry and strawberry fruit with a fairy-dusting of spice. Smooth sliky tannins and a refreshing light/medium-bodied palate. Simple. Joyful. Just what you want at the price. - Different Drop Wine Team

Throughout the past few vintages - we’ve had the opportunity to play around with various clones, viticulture and whole-bunch use for Pinot Noir - but we really think we’re onto something in 2017. Bring things back-to-basics - yummy, delicious and uplifting Pinot Noir. We’re not searching for complexity - we’re searching for playfulness - and we get it in spades on this release.
